    Pros

    International company with plenty of opportunity to travel. Company works globally so good opportunities to work on engines not tied to only one site.

    Cons

    I don't see a strong future for commercial or military applications. We just lost thousands of years of experience with volunteer lay-offs and they seem to be replacing them with newgrads.

    Advice to Management

    Start to value experience or you will spend 2X to make the same product.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay, great product and exciting industry. Lots of opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, government contracts make it difficult to live up to company expectations at the same time. Goals are unrealistic.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize the real talents at the organizations, do what you must to motivate and retain them. Let go of the dead weight, and good ol' boy wagon riders.

    Pros

    Indianapolis office is located in the heart of downtown. Open seating allows for quick meetings with colleagues and a chance to hide when approaching deadlines

    Cons

    Loss of vacation & holidays, loss of free coffee, no paid overtime but required to work more than 40 hours / week, forced out-sourcing for engineering

    Advice to Management

    This a British owned company with an office in Indianapolis. Treat it as such. The days of GM are gone forever.
