Pros

If you like working on defense contracts, and don't mind paper work, it isn't a bad place for job stability (and knowing what to expect on a day-to-day basis) when there are plenty of contracts. Watch out when contracts are about to end, though.

Cons

Once contracts come to a close, you may be laid off (it's the nature of defense contracting). Middle management is pretty inept in terms of assigning adequate work and encouraging career growth. Everyday operations are incredibly inefficient and riddled with large amounts of paperwork and Powerpoint presentations, but very little actual design work. Promotions are given out based on tenure, not merit. And raises are given out based on averages amongst people with your same job title, so all-in-all, raises are given just at the level of inflation (or a bit lower).

Advice to Management

Encourage hard work by rewarding people based on merit, not tenure. Apply company policies with integrity, do not use them as excuses to penalize employees.

    Pros

    Great variety of projects to work on over time so you are not stuck doing one thing your whole life.

    Cons

    Defense is cyclical; when your project ends in a down cycle there may not be another for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on what you are doing.

    Pros

    There are many exciting projects to work on for NG and job security is very good. Salary and benefits are OK. The people there are smart and professional. I have a particularly good management but that cannot be said for the company as a whole.

    Cons

    Lots of red tape to cut through in order to get trivial things done. Lots of process to follow that can be counter productive. Contractors are not treated as well as employees. For example they have cubicles on the other side of the building. Environment is dull.

    Advice to Management

    Close your office door. We don't want to hear it.
