    Pros

    Great and visionary corporate leadership with I think a true desire to do the right thing and deep insight into the future.

    Cons

    Big companies trying to hold on to Government contract work can sometimes water down principle at the middle layers in order to pander to the government reps who are holding contract keys.

    Advice to Management

    Be an agent of change to help the government shed it's own funk and get real, top quality, products to real war-fighters without all the bureaucratic nonsense. Don't be an "enabler of mediocrity" and take a few risks at the lower levels.
