    I have been working at TeleCommunication Systems as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    still few good team players exists

    Cons

    The workforce is frozen in old technology and legacy processes traceable to lack of decision making capabilities anywhere above line-level managers.

    If you are a senior in the team, speaks a lot, blame ex team mates for every single issue, you have no work ethic, and do not have actual management skills, you have a very high chance of getting promoted.

    Too much work and not enough people. Never any play. Management rarely promotes fun activities.
    Office space is gloomy.

    Everyone is focused on meeting unrealistic expectations of upper management, so there is not time for knowledge sharing or skills transfer. Your cubicle is your island, and it's not uncommon to go a whole day without personal interaction, even desk neighbors will IM each other.

    Company has started losing talented people, this trend will continue.

    Advice to Management

    talk to people understand people

    I have been working at TeleCommunication Systems full-time

    Pros

    Good salary, friendly people, casual environment, flexible hours, decent benefits.

    Cons

    Slow to adapt to changes in the industry, so much so that they lose competitive edge, layoff staff ramp up work with fewer staff to meet goals with other companies. Other companies want more productivity leaving one option... hire more people.

    Moral is unrepairable
    Never learn from mistakes (or worse unable to avoid repeating)
    Poor resolve to fix issues encouraging a domino workaround philosophy while mission statements posted on walls tout quality commitments.

    Advice to Management

    Commit and invest in a direction, or sell the dysfunctional piece and let a monster company shake it up and breath some life and innovation into the mix.
