Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Sierra Nevada Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Unbelievable compensation package, 401K, PTO, bonus. Great social events and gifts. If you love to work and have nothing else in your life and are a type A personality who can't get along with anyone else then this is the place for you!

Cons

Drastically underbidding and then riding the engineers is standard operating procedure. EVERY project is behind schedule before it starts. This place has the most uncompensated overtime worked of any that I have seen, but due to the high base compensation it is expected/demanded.

Advice to Management

Blow it up and start over. How else do you change the culture of an entire corporation?

    I have been working at Sierra Nevada Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Best 401k plan Ive ever seen; blows LM, NGC and Boeing out of the water; lots of growth potential regardless of years experience; if you are a high performer, you will move up quickly

    Cons

    There is a waiting period before some of the benefits kick in.
