Pros

Solid company that has wisely invested in both foreign and domestic contracts. Merit based promotions seem fair. Decent opportunities. Company will train you if needed. You can easily make a lifetime career with this company.

Cons

Large company that has too many processes/red tape at times for domestic contracts. United Healthcare is a terrible HMO if you have a family. You will get a bill for everything related to your children/pregnancy/prescriptions.

Advice to Management

Allow your Section Managers more time to work with their personnel in regards to careers. SMs are required to spend 3/4 of their time on business contracts and the personnel are often neglected and not grown properly. It is often sink-or-swim on your own.

    Pros

    Interesting projects to work on. Friendly and smart coworkers. Feels like a family at work. Good benefits and a great company discount system.

    Cons

    Can be slow due to the nature of Defense Contracting. Jobs not always stable, since government policies are changing (especially with regard to national debt issue)

    Advice to Management

    Look to diversify from Defense to keep cycles down.
