    Pros

    The people and the technology.

    Cons

    There aren't many women in leadership even though their is an organized group for woman in leadership. They recognize it and are working on it. It is positive and negative.

    Advice to Management

    You need some diversity on your team.

    I worked at ARINC full-time

    Pros

    The company was recently purchased by Rockwell Collins. The senior management has made some welcome changes to benefits and the bonus program.

    Cons

    Communication between departments could be better. The buildings are in need of remodeling. Overall not too much to complain about.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    I worked at ARINC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The majority of people I have worked with are extremely bright and very personable. The benefits are actually pretty good there compared to most places I've worked.

    Cons

    The management has shown favoritism in certain cases. The are a lot of office politics as well.

    Advice to Management

    I think management should involve some of the lower level employees in there decision making more often.

    Pros

    Great company and management to work for. Family oriented. From a technical stand point, they believe if it isn't broke, don't fix it, so some of the technology is older.

    Cons

    no comments at this time.

    Pros

    Mostly interesting work and projects. Nice people to work with. A lot of cool things can be learned.

    Cons

    Contractors are always a 2nd sort, and the company often reminds about this. Not on purpose, I believe, but you can definitely feel it.

    Contractors cannot use the gym, contractors cannot use the side-doors of the office buildings, contractors usually are not invited on the meetings.

    The most nasty thing is when you receive a corporate email regarding the whatever interesting activity within the company, you apply, and then the manager tell you that you cannot participate because this is for the full-time employees only.
    Why you include contractors in these emails then?

    Advice to Management

    Leave the full-time - contractor employee differences for the paper.

    Pros

    It's in Annapolis, which is a nice place to live. The poeple are friendly for the most part.

    Cons

    Everyone who could get out was getting out, lots of people were being laid off. The pay was significantly less than I would have earned at most engineering firms. Working in the aviation industry was pretty cool.

    Advice to Management

    pay your interns a little more.

    Pros

    close to home. competitive pay and benefits. nice area in Annapolis

    Cons

    still largely run like a governement organization, slow to transition toward commerical business. Good old boy network in place. Incentives to take risks are poor. Purchase by Carlyle has not been a positive as they have not delivered on their promises. It was a lot of hype and many people did lose their jobs. The primary benefactors were were the CEO and the CFO. The employees were largely sold out.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. Your business is all about people, without them you will not continue to grow.
