    Pros

    Great opportunity to learn cutting edge design, analysis, and manufacturing techniques for space based telescopes.
    Pay and benefits are very competitive for the region.

    Cons

    Upper-level managers are too non-technical for the business and are disconnected from workforce.
    Mid-level managers tend to be empire builders and lead by personality (pushers).
    Company has too many contentious factions for its size.

    Advice to Management

    Upper-level managers--get out of your offices regularly, walk around the floor, introduce yourselves, and have some conversations. You will meet some interesting people and understand your business better.


  2. "Fair compensation, but company lack vision."

    Pros

    Fair compensation, good benefits, generally good people to work with.

    Cons

    Senior management often lacks good leadership abilities and relies on buzz-word business skills. Quite often, tools and polocies such as VBSS are applied to projects that they are not intended for. Engineering takes a back seat to these initiatives and the product/ project schedule and budget suffers.
