Pros

good people, challenging work. There were a good number of projects that required different skill sets such that you could push in different directions

Cons

subject to liberal cut backs. As with all jobs that depend on the needs of the Department of Defense it was not uncommon for work to be slowed or canceled because of congressional bickering

Advice to Management

Understand that long-range planning is important

    Pros

    Laid back environment, work from home when you need to, low stress, good pay

    Cons

    Inefficient culture that stems for government and defense contracts, poor intern development (in my case, very dependent on your manager some are very good)

    Advice to Management

    Focus on creating a leaner organization that empowers decision makers. It seemed like everything needed approval from 9 people before anything could get done.

    Pros

    The technology and technical challenges in the projects can make for interesting work depending on the program you work on.

    Cons

    Out dated culture - for a company that designs next generation technologies they are not quick to adapt to using newer technologies.

    Advice to Management

    Engagement starts with the company leadership and there needs to be clearly identified initiatives that the leadership is willing to pursue. The engagement is 100% focused on bottom up and the top down is completely ignored.
