Pros

I work in a relaxed atmosphere.

Cons

Like all other companies, employees are paying more for health care coverage. The long-term employees who are maxed out on vacation recently lost a day of vacation (25 days to 24 days) and were told that it was a good thing. New people get less pension benefits. You could be a number unless you purposely stand out.

Advice to Management

1. Pay more of the health care dollars. 2.Consolidate the many company networks into one well working network. 3. I would perfer having a local help-desk person.

    Pros

    Variety of projects, Flexible Hours, Benefits, Excellent Camaraderie, Excellent working environment.

    Cons

    One of the major downsides is the heavy military background in management. Some people just never leave the military mentality and bringing that type of structure into a civilian company doesn't always work. Overall the management is good, however, on occasions I find myself reporting to the XO and the CO.

    Advice to Management

    Interact more with your employee's and praise them more often for the good work they are doing. Each sector/business unit/project should sponser a monthly or quarterly event to build morale and allow employee's to interact more with the management.

    Pros

    Interesting projects, lots of opportunity to try different types of work. There are also a lot of good benefits, 401K, good healthcare plans. Except there is not much help with daycare if you're just starting a family. If your'e working on a project where Northrop is the prime contractor, there seems to be a substantial amount of good resources (computers, software, development environments) available, with minimal restrictions

    Cons

    Poor management, depending on which group you work with. There is the typical old school mentality where a lot of the older/near retirement folk think their way is the best. They don't do much to retain young people.

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible and more willing to listen to the younger employees
