Pros

Intellectual challenge for analyzing, building, and testing advanced sensors. Managers recognize effective communication as well as thorough analysis of a problem and innovative solutions. "Hire a bunch of really smart people and let them figure out what they're supposed to do."

Cons

New grads can get lost. Many of the most interesting projects are classified. Accounting system does not motivate programs to mentor or train junior engineers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Company needs to differentiate labor costs so that programs *want* junior people to solve problems. Current accounting leads every program to staff the most senior people they can find.

    Pros

    The customer you are supporting makes your work very rewarding. You know that you are impacting the lives of your customer each day. The work environment was very friendly and each person was easy to get along with. The team I was on held fun outings every few months. The management team I was under communicated very well with us and let us know how we could improve and rewarded us when we went the extra mile. The people were very willing to show you new things and help you learn new areas of the system. Teamwork was very important in the group I was a part of.

    Cons

    The location I was at and the specific program I was on did not have many opportunities for advancement. I had to look outside my immediate program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I did not interact with Senior Management very much.

    Pros

    work/life balance, casual dress code that is highly conducive to a productive environment. I've seen much smaller, lesser companies make a big issue out of a dress code and drive employees crazy when they don't even have to meet customers in person. People can do a lot more when they are comfortable.
    I thought the benefits were decent and I thought the people were very friendly and professional.

    Cons

    I don't know the company well enough at this point to critique it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, I thought there were way too many useless meetings going on all the time. The managers seemed a bit
    frustrated by the constant random organizational meetings that interupted the workday every week. I understand that it's important to stress ethics, to reinforce 6 sigma, to have meetings about finding ways to better your department, but
    I felt like those meetings were a little too often.
