I have been working at Rockwell Collins full-time

Pros

Well planned projects move quickly. Some flexibility on technology choices. Overall friendly atmosphere. Have access to newer technologies on a few projects. Management is flexible with work/ life balance.

Cons

Too few talented people: many survive by seniority. Most work outsourced to untrained programmers. Few opportunities for advancement if you are not outsourced.

Many projects are under-funded or short-scheduled. This leads to expected crisis near end of most projects. This leads to lots of overtime.

Advice to Management

Internal divisions and politics leads to waste. No reason to work too hard: no reward or upside.
