    Pros

    Very interesting projects, people are kind and help you to understand the problems related to guidance and control design for the whole missile system. It's a very stimulating place to work.

    Cons

    Career opportunities are not so satisfactory, the average age is a bit high and it's very difficult to be recruited definitely by this company if you start as an external consultant or as an unpaid internship

    Pros

    Flexi time scheme is very good and being able to go home early on a Friday really helps with the work/life balance

    Cons

    salaries and treatment of people is inconsistent. People on lower grades earning more than people on higher grades. Also new starters are given significantly more money than current employess doing exactly the same job and then expected to train them. Career progression is virtually impossible, they are quite happy to let someone do a job of a higher level and not get the promotion and salary to match. That said if you work in the right department, have a good manager and your face fits you get better treatment. Some people are ridiculously overworked to the point where its made them very ill but little or no concern is shown, then there are others doing absolutely nothing and get away with it. Talent is not recognised. . People of lower levels are not respected at all. The only way to get any respect is if you work a 50 hour week and are a senior manager. HR are useless, if you have a problem you get listened to but don't expect anything to be done. Its best not to complain if you are being vicimised as it just causes the bullies to get worse and they gradually wind you down until you are forced to resign. Morale of the staff generally is extremely low. If you are young graduate you will get looked after and encouraged to progress. If you are older and been there a while you will be invisible. They spend too much money on making the offices and the site look good when they should be spending it on looking after the staff and paying them a decent wage

    Advice to Management

    Far too much to write down, see above
