    Current Employee - Senior Systems Engineer
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Work with higher level sponsors, if you are good.
    MITRE Institute for training.
    Previously good benedits.

    Cons

    As the other reviews said, no promotions are available.
    Salarieis are languished.
    Management is old and stogy. Would never make it in a commercial environment. They're not going anywhere, however.
    Too much administration, no marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the old dead wood managers.
    Implement more marketing, because the company is vulnernable to downturns.
    How about good salaries, not 50th percentile?

    "Cut dead wood, not benefits"

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Work/life balance, good retirement matching.

    Cons

    Lots of incompetent and non-technical managers for an engineering company that is one of the "best places to work." Limited feedback going up the chain (no 360) so terrible managers and department heads tend to stick around forever (as others have said, they'd be basically unemployable anywhere else). Lots of talk about ethics and values but very little behind it when bad things actually happen.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, not just managers. Why are benefits being cut when you can get rid of useless employees to cut expenses?
