Pros

Started out with solid benefits, competitive pay, chance to take on exciting/challenging problems (no shortage of ownership/responsibilities for those looking to excel).

Cons

Highly influenced by government politics with diminishing customer diversity. Though current Corporate/Space Systems executive leadership have 100+ collective years of experience at LM, they seem ill-prepared to navigate changing financial, political, and technical environment (ex. Commercial Ventures effort seems like a feeble attempt to breathe new life into the business). Simply put, LM Space Systems has fallen out of favor. What is particularly frustrating is the lack of transparency between executive leadership and workforce.

Advice to Management

Invest $$$ in R&D to keep company afloat. Commercial Ventures IR&Ds are too little/too late. Figure out clear roles responsibilities among 3 major Space Systems Facilities and communicate that "down". For that matter - ditch the dead weight and pyramid shaped hierarchy; see NetApp for examples on culture, communication, & and structure.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Occasionally working with cutting edge hardware. Autonomy to do the work you need to get done. Travel to unique places

    Cons

    Suffocating process, extremely dated corporate culture. Projects drag on for years. Software is often blamed for cost overruns Most things you work on are extremely old (C / ADA). Most people have a pension and are just trying to not get laid off before they hit their magic years of service. Huge compensation rift between pensioners and non-pensioners.

    Advice to Management

    Hold yourselves accountable for failures. Despite multiple failures the same people continue to climb the ladder

    Pros

    Interesting work products on some programs

    Cons

    Unethical Senior Management
    No work/life balance
    Age/Gender Discrimination (young white males don't stand a chance)

    Advice to Management

    Try honesty.... clean out the entire HR organization and hold corrupt individuals accountable.
    There is no excuse for treating human beings as disposable assets.
