Pros

The people and the technology was the best. Worked for them for 25 years? Excellent resource groups and activities

Cons

Our facility was small and had limited opportunities. But being small made it feel like a family, since you knew everyone

    Pros

    Some interesting projects to work on. Generally friendly work force.

    Cons

    Your hard work translates directly to a bonus for your boss not compensation for you. Expected to work at least 50 to 60 hours a week without adequate compensation. Expected to conduct "mandatory" company training on your own time when not encouraged to bill your customer for it. Communication is terrible. Job security depends on your boss liking you.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to your employees and expecting them to be happy about it. Next time you do your "anonymous employee survey" keep the results you don't like instead of classifying them as "statistically insignificant" and throwing them out.

    Pros

    Most people, who are not managers, are very nice.

    Cons

    Very political. There is a chasm between the Management and the Workers. If you tell a manager that there is a problem with a product you may very likely be targeted for retaliation including bad reviews, less pay increases and lay off. Example, try to find out what happened to any engineers who spoke out about problems on the Patriot Missile System in the 1990s.

    Advice to Management

    There are only a few that a non political worker can talk to but even these will throw you in front of the bus in order to survive when the heat is on.
