Good Company for new hires, very slow advancement opportunities.

Pros

Stable company even though continued budget cuts. If contracts are cut and work is slow, they will try to place you in a temporary position or relocate you to another division as opposed to firing you. There are many challenging opportunities and opportunities to travel both domestic and internationally (depending on which program you work for). The people take great pride in their work.

Cons

At Aeronautics in Marietta, if you are not production, it is hard to advance. You basically have to move a mountain or get connected with the right person.

Hard to move around in the same location. If you want to switch positions, you basically have to move to a different business unit.

Pay is ok but raises are not as good as other organizations.

Management tends to loose focus as they climb the ladder.

Large generation gap. Too many people are only talking about retirement instead of innovative ideas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more in consistantly hiring young, talented individuals to replace all of the "baby boomers" that are about to leave very soon. We do not need to continue to have this gap in knowledge in the future.

    Good paying job and opportunity to work up in the company. Excellent 401k benefits. The work environment is very relaxed with no pressure.

    The pension plan has been eliminated for anyone that's considered a new hire. The health care plan benefits are not the best.

    Appreciate the ones that work hard and let them know it. Make readily available the resources needed for employees to do there job.
