    Pros

    The San Diego site is unlike most in that employees have their own offices rather than cubicles, and many have window offices. There is a good blend of interesting and challenging projects mixed with more routine programs that pay the bills. Company supports flex time and 9-80 work week which is nice. Promotions for entry to mid-level enginners are readily attainable for solid performers. Technical competence of enginners at the site is well above average and most are genuinely interested in their work. Salaries are good.

    Cons

    Corporate medical benefits have gone downhill as with many sectors. New LM health plan is less than ideal with employees picking up a lot more of the costs. IRAD funds are hard to come by and favor improving near term business results vs. long term advanced research goals. IT support is understaffed and struggles to keep up with day to day requests. IT services frequently block useful content and spyware/security/scanning apps and practices render developer machines sluggish.

    Advice to Management

    Empower individual sites by providing better training budgets, more direction over local IRAD. Consider outsourcing IT services or have them report directly to local engineering. Provide more pay for incentive funds so engineers can be rewarded more readily for good performance, and make funds available throughout the year.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The salaries are phenomenal. It's the only way they get people to stay there, because they are all miserable otherwise.

    Cons

    Not a very family oriented company. They favor ex-military, and if you work there, you can get your entire family in the door easily. Also, once you're hired your performance doesn't matter because they never fire. Because of that, those who are hard workers suffer. SI&T , Training and Technical Documentation, and Security (IT) are the worst departments.

    Advice to Management

    Feedback will not be taken, as turnover in leadership never happens, and it's so political, no one ever gets fired.
