Pros

Lots of interesting, diverse, challenging projects in many domains...possible to get different experiences without leaving employer as might be the case with smaller companies; many intelligent co-workers - many having advanced degrees. 9/80 work schedules for many a real plus (alternate Fridays off)

Cons

Stifling bureaucracy (not unexpected due to 1) size of company itself and 2) primary customer being the Federal government; somewhat older workforce not necessarily up-to-speed with current software methodologies (for example, resistance to Agile vs embracing Waterfall software development). Challenging budget constraints likely with cutbacks in defense spending.

Advice to Management

Quit staffing projects based on headcount and maybe read things like Brooks' "The Mythical Man-Month"
