    Former Employee - Director of Manufacturing in Los Angeles, CA

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Comdev for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Comdev had a corporate driven policy to look for those that put in lots of effort, and got good results, and spent the time to take those folks up to corporate HQ for a week each year and put them through classes and also get the board of directors to meet them. They were a great company to work for from this perspective.

    Cons

    Lack of work within the USA and changes to ITAR made the manufacturing facility in the USA no longer a good financial decision, and they closed it down... so being laid off was the negative.

    Advice to Management

    Keep looking for the motivated folks, having the acknowledgment that hard work got noticed and that it was rewarded made me want to do even more for the organization.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Comdev

    Pros

    Professional environment, allowed time off when needed. Opportunities for advancement if you kiss butt (I haven't advanced!) will help pay for continuing education.

    Cons

    Worked for Com Dev for 12 years. It was absolutely awesome for the first 4 years and then a change in upper management caused the company to go down hill from there. Current CEO only cares about filling his own pockets. What was once an friendly and inspiring place is now a place most employees hate.

    Advice to Management

    Give people credit where it is due. Remember that without the hard work of the little guys, you bigger guys wouldn't be getting your bonuses.
