    Pros

    If you want a predictable workplace day in day out, this place is for you!
    Seem to appreciate those that have served in the armed forces.
    Opportunities to work within various departments over time is plentiful.
    A mix of young and motivated looking to start a career, and those who have been put out to pasture or are counting down the days to retirement.
    Offer's a pension if you can handle working here long enough.
    They're into Six Sigma if this is your thing.
    Seems like a good place to learn about accounting or supply chain management.
    Life / work balance can be pretty good, subject to department or role.

    Cons

    Hands down, the most stale and boring place I've ever worked.
    Company-wide executive emails are still typed in ALL CAPS.
    Arrogant management. I mean, we're talking automobile parts here people.
    Personal email like hotmail, facebook or gmail is blocked.
    So cheap that management endlessly debates basic IT infrastructure investments - this mentality explains why consultants have to be brought in to try to do anything innovative.
    Laughable intranet and internal sites.
    Employees have to pay for plastic forks and spoons in cafeteria if they don't buy food.
    Out of touch with current industry best practices - middle management is more concerned with being able to check a box to claim a task was completed, versus doing it the right way.
    Worse than the federal management in terms of innovation or information sharing between groups/departments.
    They really should just send ITD to India like Sr. Management really wants to do, but office politics continue to drag this out.
    Non-IT Employees are required to wear a badge they paid for through an annual charity event in order to wear jeans.
    Below average pay and benefits versus industry/region.

    Pros

    Cool products and a decent place to get experience - and get out!

    Cons

    Work environment, culture, and compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up! It isn't 1985 anymore. Company policies need to be updated so employees will want to hang around. Here's a thought - just for once, do something that shows you care about the employees instead of making them take two weeks off so you can achieve "record profits." It's time for "Mr. Chairman" to stop the bleeding and attempt to compete with the employment competition.
