I have been working at FN America full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

-proud workforce
-clean manufacturing facility, high tech equipment
-contracts now more aggressive, new initiatives
-one of the better HR depts I've seen. Benefits are competitive, education reimbursement is great.
-most managers seem to care about employees' work-life balance

Cons

-old culture, resistant to change. Not a good attitude to have when defense contracts start to decline.
-incompentency in a few of the managers. Increased amount of disgruntled employees if one of the incompetent managers is Belgian, as perception is that Belgian managers are 'untouchable'
-quality issues in the supply base; better than it was last year, still a big opportunity for improvement
