    Pros

    They actually pay what you are promised. Many of the people are great to work with and very talented. Good opportunities for minorities and women.

    Cons

    Ageism is rampant. All contrarian views are squashed as part of the culture. Management opportunities are reserved only for those that are "yes" people. Culture of micromanagement is become rampant and causing employees to miss other things that should be important. Innovation and risk taking not encouraged and even short term failures are punished rather than analyzed, reviewed and learned from.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to so closely control the culture of the organization. You are hurting the company in the long term and forcing many, many good and talented people out. Play at least some of the strategy for the long term and not just short term gains. Look beyond the red and green numbers to understand what is really happening. Find other management books to read.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good for Texas. Work can be interesting but generally too compartmentalized. There is technical challenge available but are generally overwhelmed by institutional deficiencies.

    Cons

    First to middle levels of management are pretty hopeless. Too much work going overseas. Too much work being done by short term contractors so no continuity of effort. Engineering process is fractured at best but realistically it is broken.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Purge the deadwood out of first to middle level management.
