    Pros

    Lots of interesting projects to work on

    Cons

    Can be diffiicult to get good assignments, doing a good (or great) job on an assignment does not translate into career advancement. It is often necessary to move from project to project, organization to organization, to find suitably interestng and challenging work. Even harder to advance into management. Women are not taken seriously either technically or as managers. Women can apply for jobs through human resources and if they are deemed qualified the hiring manager is required to interview them, but that's about it. Just this week I was one of 5 candidates for a techical management job, and the only candidate to have risen through the ranks. Needless to say I did not get the job.

    Advice to Management

    Create more opportunities for advancement.

    Pros

    Challenging Problems, Steady, Good Contracts, Growth

    Cons

    Some programs are very top heavy, You have to change programs to move up...some engineers have good breadth of experience, but it is rarely noticed Layoffs...fact of life in defence right now

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond those metrics in your rankings...definitely look beyong the performance reviews. There are some engineers and scientists that perform well outside of the pigeon holes.
