    I worked at Ultra Electronics full-time

    Pros

    Nice building and some great people. (If they're still there)

    Cons

    ATS were a fantastic company with a great culture of 'warfighter' first. Employing many veterans, they had a great reputation with the guys in the field.

    Sadly, this is no longer the case. Everyone understands that times are hard in the defense industry and that sometimes, people need to be laid off. However, there is a right way and wrong way to manage that. ATS management do it the wrong way. Every time.

    A management style that is both arrogant and cowardly shows the company what it has become.

    Join at your peril.

    Advice to Management

    Leave and get replacements.

    I worked at Ultra Electronics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Responsive managment
    Intelligent, young technical staff
    Casual dress
    Good benefit package

    Cons

    Limited training and personal growth opportunities
    Salary isn't very competitive

    Advice to Management

    Current performance review process has vastly improved the communication between technical staff and management, but it seems like there should be a strong push to allow for specific and general technical growth. If it can be paid for by a contract that is great, but I think this is important enough that it should be an option to do this under general overhead.

    I think company culture has been improving under Paul and good things are coming.
