Pros

Great attitude towards employees in need after natural disasters. Great place for engineers to work. Progressive company that works to increase market share.

Cons

Sectors too competitive with each other. Couldn't get anyone to work together across sector lines. Product lines so diverse it was tough to get corporate support on specific initiatives. Huge culture shock between "airplane builders" and "shipbuilders". HR function in several sectors was terrible (incompetent and deceitful).No upward mobility in management. No clear leadership or management career path development.

Advice to Management

Have CEO go through Undercover CEO experience to understand local business unit operations. Company too big and bureaucratic.

    Pros

    seasoned experts, some very competent upper managers who are very sharp and genuinely care about your growth. not too much politics

    Cons

    culture is very old school,slow. not much young blood. you become very specialized and may become bored quickly with little room for innovation.

    Advice to Management

    it takes too long for employees to orient themselves; assimilate your employees better and create an agile environment and drive your tasks to completion aggressively.

    Pros

    Fairly laid back work environment if you can get with the right group of people. Company is trying to find ways to increase "engagement" and provide programs to promote work-life balance and healthy living.

    Cons

    Each year the benefits are getting worse. Decreased merit percentage increases, allotment to accrued vacation, unlimited sick days to PTO, increased insurance premiums. Promoting "lateral" job moves versus promotions, even when deserved.
