I worked at Telephonics as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

gave good insight into defense industry.
ability to move around within the company.
mentor was very helpful and always made sure I had work to do, though other interns weren't as lucky.
gained connections for recommendations.
4.5 day work week was nice.

Cons

highly disorganized. employees spend at least as much time in meetings discussing what should be done on a project as they do actually working on a project. employees are constantly running around trying to find someone or waiting for someone to return from vacation before progressing.

Advice to Management

fewer/shorter meetings and better communication between people on the same project.

    Pros

    Interesting technologies\end products to work on

    Cons

    Top heavy, too many chiefs, cover your back-side enviorement. each engineering class seemed pitted against one another...System engineering not playing nice with Electrical engineering. I was hired to work as a lead engineer on the NETCOM-V program, which I learned later was in very bad shape, was plegged with problems do to poor past amangement decisons....program was hemerging money due to outside entity having done the actual hands-on design. Two prior lead engineers were gone through before I was hired. I was let go 9 months later...first time in my entire career.

    Advice to Management

    I belive this needs to be addresed at the top-most level (i.e. GM level) and then down. Thier issue is really a culture issue. A sense of unity between all displines needs to be ushered in by Joe Battaglia thta promotesaccountability at the manager levels.
