    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Nice office space in the Mesa Arizona facility

    Cons

    There's a culture in the mesa, Az office that thrive in the desire to managment people by fear. If mistakes happen which in any orgazation they do, manager will reprimand or fire the person that made the mistake. Also the company is very volitial and have had several round of layoff since 2009.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employee to makes mistake and learn in the process.

    Pros

    There is no so much overhead like in other government contractors of similar size. System engineers and engineers have good communication. Requirements are flown down very efficiently and engineers' progress monitored with available help if needed. Good pay, Good benefits, great knowledgeable people to work with. I feel, I learn enough interesting subjects at my work.

    Cons

    There are no so many technologies being developed in Clearwater. Therefore, if their products get replaced by competitors', they will run out of big chunk of business.
    Typical training ethics garbage, employees have to take like at any other government contractor.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, good job. Try to diversify people skill wise so they can switch between different projects. Do not share projects between facilities that are thousands miles apart from each other while you can not move people from one project to anouther at same facility. Try to make employees' skills more diverse although I see attempts of it but it is not enough.
