    Pros

    CEO Tom Gentile is driving a very positive culture change. It will take some time to full take hold, but it's definitely moving in the right direction.
    Very cool work statement - everything from commercial airliners to the B21 bomber.
    Stable business, strong backlog, good overall performance.
    Competitive salary and overall compensation - good 401K match, gainshare program, paid time off.

    Cons

    Network infrastructure seems a bit outdated and slow, which impacts administrative productivity, but I understand it's a priority for improvement in 2017.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the employee engagement; it seems to be working.
