    Pros

    Ability to work from home.

    Cons

    Be prepared to work 50 - 70 hours a week. Pay could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to focus working closely during the day to day with employees rather than working 24/7 with Directors and only focusing 10% of their time managing employees which is usually to deliver the message that things are changing, again.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great place to start your career since for the college grad, you have opportunities to upgrade your degree via tuition reimbursement. 401k is on par with the rest of the industry, but the rest of the benefits package is great.

    Cons

    Office politics is insanely vicious here. Employees not only need to be good at their job but also be good at positioning themselves politically in order to succeed. Employee respect is nonexistent. Management's idea of work/life balance is being able to stay at home on nights and weekend while you dial in and do more work. Program and project schedules are always totally unrealistic, so be ready for that type of “work/life balance” quite a bit. Managers of technical groups are usually not technical, and rely on their engineers to provide them with technical advice and knowledge, resulting in engineers being in meetings for at least 40% of their work day.

    Advice to Management

    You lose a lot of good employees by burning them out or getting them so fed up with the schedules that they look elsewhere. Be realistic with program schedules and understand that they always change over time, especially when delays are early in the process it will affect the end dates accordingly. Train your managers in the content that their teams are providing (especially those that manage technical groups) so that they can have complete and total understanding of the issues that their direct reports face.
