Pros

Excellent compensation with equally great benefits. State-of-the-art software and hardware tools available to help you complete your project. Good team-focused approach to project completions.

Cons

Project schedules / timelines aren't bases on realistic and obtainable goals. Employees are pressured to support these unrealistic schedules.

Advice to Management

Consider input from employees when project schedules are developed. Be willing to accept realistic and obtainable goals rather than "must complete no matter what"

    Pros

    Excellent pay
    Great benefits
    Management shows appreciation for responsibility and hard work
    Interesting and important work
    Comfortable work environment

    Cons

    Since it is a "union shop", seniority counts more than hard work
    "Legacy workers" just kill time until retirement
    Lower management can be disorganized when setting priorities

    Advice to Management

    Just because workers in another state work for less pay, too much rework of product negates the savings.
