Pros

Good work environment. People are in general pretty friendly and willing to help understand the intricacies of working for a government contractor.

Cons

Company has no regards for its employees when it comes to layoffs. Too many managers and too many levels of management. No clear understand about the future of this site.

Advice to Management

Too many chiefs and not enough Indians can't make a company successful. Watch out!!

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -Co workers were extremely helpful
    -Immediate managers were willing to assist and many managers at the site were more than fair
    -When initially hired, the culture was tight knit and people were close
    -New challenges made for a dynamic work environment I will fondly remember

    Cons

    -Upper management (offsite) extremely dishonest toward employees
    -After reorg new management arrived and created a culture about bean counting and less about engineering solutions
    -Lack of communication on some programs - made it difficult to model things when nobody tells you that they have placed other equipment in your spot
    -Layoffs handled very poorly - no warning for most and those with warning weren't told their last day until they were escorted from their desks

    Advice to Management

    Being honest to employees and offering constant support is the proper way to run a company. Walking all over employees does not create a successful company.
