I worked at Lucas Systems

Pros

Small company with busy schedule. Plenty of opportunity. If you are talented and interested in developing software this is the right place to work.

Cons

Customers are not reasonable, hard to manage their expectations. At times you can feel overwhelmed trying to support and develop.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Lucas Systems

    Pros

    Very interesting technical work and opportunities for advancement in many areas. Diverse & impressive customer base & technical areas give people who like to blaze their own trail the opportunity to create their own niche or create their own position. There is a very bright and creative core group of employees.

    Cons

    Project-based work can override research & development efforts and poorly-defined requirements can create context-switching situations for project teams or individual engineers.

    I worked at Lucas Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some of the best software engineer's I've ever worked with. Was able to work with Interesting projects and interesting technologies.

    Cons

    Long hours with the expectation that you will work nights and weekends. Upper management is set in their ways, will not listen to others suggestions simply because they've been doing this for 15 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to others and not just the "Yes men".
