    I worked at Orbital Sciences full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The product and people were exciting. There was rewards and recognition by programs.
    There was also some opportunities to create your own job.

    Cons

    If you were effective the hours could be very long and you may be supported/rewarded mainly by program management. There was little or no training or training budget and keeping up with any industry news or advances was mainly done on your own time.
    The communication between levels and in general was poor and any thing which had any budget and was not
    "direct labor" was prone to be cut or minimized. (This does not help long term productivity)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not enough (or incorrect) experience at senior levels (Directors and mid manager level)
    There are directors and managers who have been put in positions which are either beyond their experience level or who have not had the external (or internal) experience in the specific job to do a good job at directing and improving the areas of responsibility.
    They seem to be more of the answer the boss's questions and not being capable of effectively directing or improvements on their own [yes men].
    There are more junior experienced people who could or have had the experience to run a better organization except they are kept either very busy or not given the "Budget or Time" to improve the situation perpetuated by some current management.
    The senior VP's need to get a true experienced professional staff and not rely on some of the current folks who are beyond their levels of competence.
