    Pros

    Compensation is performance-based, which works well provided you're in a visible role. Top tier technical folks rival the top at any tech company. Domain knowledge is well established.

    Cons

    Opportunities for "new" development are dwindling thanks to sequestration. Instead the interest seems to be in gluing existing components together in new/different ways. While "innovation" is touted the majority of programs are on the trailing edge (older technology, using obsolete compilers, etc.). Management of internal r&d (IRAD) efforts is a tug-of-war between too many parties (BD, individual business units, etc.) which hampers getting anything done. While I have no personal complaints, the shift to functional organization is not treating the majority of engineers all that well.

    Advice to Management

    If the intent is to shift from a project-oriented to product-oriented organization in light of the industry then spend some money and invest in developing those products!

    Satisfaction level highly dependent on your location and management.

    Pros

    The company is still producing some amazing air vehicles and is becoming proficient in other areas as well. Working here definitely provides the opportunity to collaborate on products that will benefit many people with a positive impact on their lives.

    Cons

    The goal of "affordability" seems to be the only consideration, and employee morale is suffering because of it. For example, the day after Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve are no longer holidays, and while that saves the company money, disgruntled employees will inevitably work less efficiently, thereby costing the company more money in the long run.

    I think it'll be a better place to work for when the current generation of managers retire.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to those who are aware and deal with the problems, not only the people who control the budget. Obviously you can't spend money on every little problem, but not enough consideration was given to those who knew how to provide solutions.
