Pros – Good work/life balance.
Some work is exciting and makes a difference.
Some very good people down in the ranks -- talented and care about what they're doing.
Cons – Upper management is out of touch -- they get bonuses while our salaries are frozen and benefits cut.
Some projects are tedious, boring, and poorly managed.
2014 isn't a good time to be a defense contractor.
Advice to Senior Management – Share the pain; stop painting rosy pictures for investors while pushing employees to keep doing more with less. Branch out from defense contracting -- the handwriting is on the wall! Try harder to insulate the teams that are rocking.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pros – Talented people, High achievers, Good peers from remote offices,Flexible hours, Comfortable workplace, Good remuneration, Excellent opportunities for training, Amazing product.
Cons – Quickly losing quality on new hires, Silly internal competition, Poor local management (since 2009), Low morale at local office, Product concept is still amazing, but its technology is almost outdated.
Advice to Senior Management – The Pittsburgh Office management needs renovation/intervention ASAP. A better strategy for talent retention needs to be established now, as senior staff that represents the technical core of the company is thinking about leaving (after 10+ years in the job). Let's keep this office a great place to work.
