Pros

*Great environment for those who like loose management (not the case 100% of the time though) *Good benefits (Education reimbursement, 401K, health, etc) *The company as a whole is great - fantastic CEO *Good facilities *Many opportunities to learn from knowledgeable people *Fascinating work

Cons

*Very, very little accountability; those who were a detriment to the company weren't dealt with very well or at all *Very little acknowledgement for those who performed in an outstanding manner. Generally in the form of "Lets just make everyone feel good" rather than pointing out stellar contributors *Multiple reductions in force over the last couple of years, >50% downsizing in my division *Poor communication between management and the production floor *Poor design for manufacturing *Poor designs in general many times *Military contract dependant

Advice to Management

I can't even being to stress how important communication is... all the way down the line.

    Pros

    Still looks like a good place to start a carreer.

    Cons

    Senior employees, it is best to move on if you can. Erosion of benefits and retirement make it even more compelling to do so.

    Advice to Management

    You have clearly been loosing top software/systems engineers over the past few years. Your talent is leaving to Bit Systems in droves. It appeared to me that recent reorganizations seem to have left no single corporate entity with an interest in growing the business in Aurora. Raytheon is eating your lunch.
