Some of the smartest people with whom you can work

Engineering Fellow (Current Employee) Tucson, AZ

ProsIntellectual 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."

ConsNew 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 Senior ManagementCompany 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
