Current Employee - Human Resources Manager  in  Dulles, VA
Current Employee - Human Resources Manager in Dulles, VA

Pros

Long-standing aerospace & defenses government contractor. Comparatively speaking, strong emphasis on ethical behaviors backed up by continual training in this regard. Pride in serving the mission to secure our country. Great benefits for this industry.

Cons

Fits and starts with enterprise initiatives so new methodologies and practices are not able to take hold because results are unrealistically required immediately. Growth and promotional opportunities based more on who you know and the influence of your advocates rather than by merit. Professes strategic view and customer support but thinking is more tactical in nature. Diversity of thought is not encouraged or accepted and accountability at the senior/executive level to drive success is not apparent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be willing to consider ideas from a variety of sources and resources with an open mind even if they are contrary. Root out those at all levels whose actions and behaviors are non-productive and disruptive to the success of the organization. Work harder to develop talent and reward initiative. Really have an open door where employees can reach out for the help they need without retribution. Welcome input from those in the younger generations who will infuse strategy with innovative ideas to meet the challenges of the 21st century and beyond. Be more willing to admit when an approach is not working and to find ways to better pivot to address and provide solutions for the changing economic, geo-political, etc. environment.

    Pros

    Many, many different career paths. Can do well if you contribute and help with the success of programs.

    As with most big companies, can be lots of process and bureaucracy. Can be at risk of being pigeon holed if you don't speak up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open communication works well, share with the team and let them know how their contributions help programs succeed.
