Pros

Good benefits, good ethics and policies, and competitive company. Overall supportive management and good talented employees. Nice perk of discounts for employees with many different companies, health club membership, etc.

Cons

Found it harder in the economic downturn to get additional training funds that I desired to help me grow professionally and advance to other positions in the company. As with many bigger companies, the HR functions, IT and your reporting management may not be local and may be more difficult or time consuming to get appropriate answers and assistance when needed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase the training initiatives a bit more and promote more internal positions and tranfers between divisions. Provide more assistance to previous employees to come back on board or to retain them when government contracts expire or layoffs occur; promote targeting previous employees who lost their positions for these reasons though targeted recruiting when new positions meeting their skills are announced (the company should look more to contact these previous employees for new positions).

    Pros

    Big company which means a fair amount of stability. good benefits package but some of that seems to be eroded each year. Interesting work. Old workforce with tons of tribal knowledge.

    Cons

    Not much potential for upward growth without at least a bachelors degree. An old workforce that is set in their ways and not very open to now ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start giving importunity's to some of the younger workforce.

    Pros

    Culture varies greatly across sites, and even between projects. Good work life balance in most cases, relatively decent compensation, and the chance to work on some really interesting technology.

    Cons

    You're either working on something cutting edge or maintaining something 30 years old, and there's a culture clash there. Some projects can turn into death marches due to inexperienced project management. Career advancement is not very meritocratic, consisting of either mandatory promotions after a few years, or politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More unification of LM culture needs to take place.
