    Pros

    If you enjoy sitting at your desk killing time for months at a time, then this is the place for you. On several occasions, I asked co-workers "has anyone told you what we're suppose to be doing ?". The response was "No." Then, when something finally came down the line ... Read "Cons"

    Cons

    Very politically charged situation that has nothing to do with ability or accomplishments. If you brown nose then, even though you can't figure out why your C++ code won't compile on a Ada compiler, you can become a technical lead two years out of college. And if you do try to actually excel, you had better do it in less than 50 lines of code or your thick fix will set off an alarm and you'll be sent packing because you might jepordize the "truck load of money backing up to there door." And since Arizona is a "right to work" state, they can liable you and there is nothing that you can do about it. Where is 60 minutes when you need them.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves and get people that have a clue about how to develop software that does more than passes tests. And when you move, don't live anywhere that might have to be defended by your missiles.

    Pros

    Job security, 9/80 schedule let you take every other friday off. Good place to work if 9 to 5 work schedule is your ambition in life.

    Cons

    Outdated working environment (aged furniture from 80s, conference room with no projector abound, tacky interior, unbearable cafeteria food, etc.), lack of innovation, weak engineering/mangement leadership, mid level experienced engineers are scarce.

    Advice to Management

    If there is desire to hire and retain young engineers, need to look at what other young energetic companies are doing.
