Pros

Interesting projects to work on. Friendly and smart coworkers. Feels like a family at work. Good benefits and a great company discount system.

Cons

Can be slow due to the nature of Defense Contracting. Jobs not always stable, since government policies are changing (especially with regard to national debt issue)

Advice to Management

Look to diversify from Defense to keep cycles down.

    Pros

    Most business units will do all they can to keep most employees rather than have them resign or terminate

    Cons

    Some business units have entirely too much turnaround with either recurring layoffs or poor management that results in a rising number of employees resigning.

    Advice to Management

    The company has created a foundation for pillars of Respect. Please use them openly and honestly without reprocussion.

    Pros

    I learned more in this job than in other jobs I've had.

    Cons

    Unstable management. Laid off a lot of good people, including me.

    Advice to Management

    Don't change your structure so much. Don't move people from project to project so much.
