    Good work life balance, not very challenging work

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Boulder, CO

    ProsGood work life balance, no more than 40 hrs a week needed to complete work. People in general are friendly

    ConsWork isn't the most challenging, if you looking for a 9 to 5 and don't want to grow your skill set it can become complacent. If you want to learn more and be cutting edge you won't like environment. Top performers are not recognized anymore than sub par performers have to bite your tongue and ignore it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good opportunities and stable work given industry norm

    Program Manager (Current Employee)
    Boulder, CO

    ProsGood people, well intended leadership who are willing to empower if you prove yourself.

    ConsLimited opportunities to be promoted in Boulder, pay is based more on the time you're there than performance. Big company mentality makes it hard to get things done many times. Often a Sub to LM or others in the business area, also makes everyday a little more difficult than other places I've been.

    Great Place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Boulder, CO

    ProsGreat Employees and a management staff that cares about thier employees. Constant challenges for all employees. Great pay and benefits. If you work hard, you will be recognized and rewarded. i have not seen an employee who deserved a good raise go without one.

    ConsSometimes we work long hours. the defence and aerospace industry has a lot of people retiring and the work load can seem unmanagable

    Advice to Senior ManagementDiversify in the public sector

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    OK Place to Work

    Engineer (Former Employee)
    Boulder, CO

    ProsMost of this depends on the department/program you're on... My experience was: job security is good. Pay/benefits good. Fun and exciting products to work on. If you have a whole lot of patience and you're a hard and smart worker that is able to live above, or at least in harmony with, the red tape, you could go far here.

    ConsLots of red tape. Little to no interest in "truly" improving processes. Not much interest in getting work done right the first time. Plenty of people not adding value to much of anything that are promoted to get them out of the way.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUntil change is genuinely addressed on a management & cultural level (yes, meaning that you yourselves will need to change the ways you think, work, make decisions, etc.) you will not have a high-performing organization that people are actually thrilled to work for. Integrity needs to be in the bottom line. Read "Power vs. Force" by Dr. David R. Hawkins to learn how to truly improve your organization, if you're even interested.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
