      Not a good fit

      Pros

      Pay was OK. Otherwise there were no pros.

      Cons

      Micro management, back stabbing, "fake" people behind every door. Set up to fail so management could use as scapegoat. Worst place I have ever worked, and that includes the infantry in Baghdad.... actually I'd rather be back on the line than with this company. As a veteran I thought this would be a good a fit. It wasn't. It was terrible. I had one supervisor that wanted us to be more "confident" in our work, but had to personally approve every single thing we did. On top of that when the team had good ideas the supervisor would claim them as their own. Bottom line, if you're a veteran who is mission driven and people first this is the last place you'll want to work. This company is profits first, product last, and people expendable.

      Pros

      The products built and the way the company works together to design and build them continues to engage through years of employment. Ample opportunities through multiple segments. People first mentality that shows.

      Cons

      Company is willing to go out and get talent, however, personnel decisions regarding retaining talent are often too little too late.
