Pros

Individual responsiblity for large dollar contracts. The exposure to negotiation of a variety of items and services. Gain experience in all aspects of contract negotiation, including cost, quality, terms and conditions, FARs, schedule, etc.

Cons

Somewhat limited view of individual potential. LM still has the "serve your time" mentality before you can be promoted even if you are bringing cutting edge processes into the organization.

Advice to Management

Ask your employees to identify areas where they can provide value to the company and then encourage and drive the opportunities to take advantage of these abilities.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The salaries are phenomenal. It's the only way they get people to stay there, because they are all miserable otherwise.

    Cons

    Not a very family oriented company. They favor ex-military, and if you work there, you can get your entire family in the door easily. Also, once you're hired your performance doesn't matter because they never fire. Because of that, those who are hard workers suffer. SI&T , Training and Technical Documentation, and Security (IT) are the worst departments.

    Advice to Management

    Feedback will not be taken, as turnover in leadership never happens, and it's so political, no one ever gets fired.
