    I have been working at Orbital Sciences full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Talent is well appreciated. Many opportunities to advance. Professional atmosphere, driven individuals. Great deal of emphasis on doing things right. Flexible work hours and good benefits.

    Cons

    Obsession with processes without regard of their effectiveness. Management making decisions in tool selections without regard and understanding of their usefulness. This has cost the company a great deal of lost money and created a lot of resentment. Belief that managing can work without talking to your employees by using software to do that. Unfocused R&D projects started and stopped multiple times then upper management not understanding why these projects cost so much. Upper management completely out of touch with reality (only in the last 4 years) and scrambling to find market traction due to missed internal product development opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the entire Tech Ops top management. What you have done in the last 4 years proved to be disastrous to GEO business competitiveness. Also you have managed to alienate most of your engineers who really feel that they are just commodities. Understand that WALT will not generate the metrics you are looking for and adds extra overhead burden to operations. Empower your engineers when selecting new tools, do not leave that to your lower level managers. Most of them have no idea how much lost money that will cost the company. Admit if you made mistakes openly and do not be afraid of reversing bad decisions. Also understand that most project developments cost more than what you are willing to admit. Pressuring your employees to sign up to schedules that cannot be met further alienates you from them and you will not get an honest feedback.
