Current Employee - Systems Engineer  in  Sunnyvale, CA (US)
Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Sunnyvale, CA (US)

Pros

* You get to work on really cool projects that make an impact to our nation's defense (i.e. military systems and fighter jets), science (i.e. weather satellites), and consumers (i.e. GPS satellites).
* Lots of different opportunities to find your niche.
* Plenty of affinity groups that you can join and executive leadership are very active in them.
* They actively promote mentoring.
* They promote cultural diversity and ethics.

Cons

* Very conservative culture. You won't find beer bashes or decorative office areas like at Google or Apple.
* The promotion process is not very good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be sure to recognize (read: promote) the young engineers that are doing work above their salary grade before they leave. Those are the ones you need to try and retain.

    Pros

    Great people and challenging work.

    Cons

    Upper management might have gutted capability/discriminators in search of lowering rates. Now we have issues winning in this economy

    Former Employee - Engineering Senior R & M in Fort Worth, TX (US)

    Pros

    Lots of professional people and disciplines. Very nice atmosphere for professionals. Company is an industry leader.

    Cons

    The system of doing business on a daily basis at worker level (below management) is cumbersome. Its difficult to get things done in a timely manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp decision making process (streamline), update information systems (IT) and get departmental insight on what can or needs to be improved.
