    Pros

    Ok benefits
    Flexibility in schedule
    Location
    Ok salary

    Cons

    Had to go through some HR actions in the past to bring salaries up to industry standards.
    No severence even after 20 yrs.
    Large company bureaucracy.
    Too much dependence on Department of Defense
    No $ to spend on R&D
    Divisions and groups unaware of capabilities of other divisions and groups - no communication
    Too much 'at will' employment to work particular contacts. This leads to uncertainty and lay offs when contracts end.
    At the mercy of bad management.
    New senior management bent on replacing longevity with new blood. No value given to corporate knowlege or experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and learn from your employees - especially when they've been around a long time. When you're new at management, sit back and observe and seek to understand before implementing changes to processes that you don't understand in the first place.
