      Great pro-life balance, but very slow paced

      Pros

      * Hours flexible. Every other Friday off by default. Work with your manager to work the days you like. Easily scale down hours and retain full benefits. * Easy work. Compared to Silicon Valley tech, moves at a snail's pace. Double edged sword. * Most stable engineering work ever.

      Cons

      * You will not improve on the job because the job is not challenging. If you are not proactive in your free time your abilities will atrophy. * Corporate bloat makes everything take 5x as long as it should. Meetings for meetings to prepare for meetings. * Salary is low compared to cutting edge tech, but work is easier so it's not unfair. * Advancement is entirely dependent on your manager, so get on his good side * you log hours on everything so getting ahead in your work offers you zero benefit. Only software gig where I have ever seen this. It's a terrible idea.

      It's not bad & It's not great

      Jul 18, 2021 - Program Cost Schedule and Control Analyst in Palmdale, CA

      Pros

      Flexible schedules, Yearly salary increases, Good teams that work well together, Managers that know their stuff, Tons of opportunities to expand network connections

      Cons

      Benefits could be a lot better, In program promotions are almost non existent; every time you want an increase in level you have to move outside to another program. Managers play favorites. Promotions are not based on merritt or hardwork but how long you've been in the industry.

      Nothing special

      Jul 28, 2021 - Senior Principal Network Engineer in San Diego, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      9/80 schedule and flexibility, ability to work remotely (though that depends on your program/role), engaging work at times

      Cons

      Health care is expensive. No stock options. PTO is OK at best. Work can seem repetitive at times. Training is a joke. Want to get a certification? Study on your own time and then they'll pay you back if you pass, maybe. Can feel morally compromising being a cog in the military industrial complex.
