    Pros

    This is a very large division of a large company. There are lots of opportunities to do lots of different things, especially if you are an engineer. People are generally treated fairly and it is hard to complain about the 9/80 work week. Overtime is not generally expected, and Tucson is a good place to raise a family.

    Cons

    Advancement and raises are based as much on who you know and how long you have been in your current position than how competent you are. It is easy to get lost in the crowd if you don't know how to take control of your career. The city of Tucson can be oppressively hot in the summer and doesn't really have a lot of activities to keep childless people occupied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should come out of their mahogany offices every once in a while and talk to employees in person, instead of posting 7 minute videos to the intranet.

    No opinion of CEO

    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    Outdated working environment (aged furniture from 80s, conference room with no projector abound, tacky interior, unbearable cafeteria food, etc.), lack of innovation,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 ManagementAdvice

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