Pros

Get to work on some of the most amazing assemblies, including satellites and fighter jets.
Good work-life balance (depending on your work group). Flex-time.
Great leadership development programs (including generous tuition reimbursement) for early career employees.

Cons

Too much bureaucracy throughout company and industry.
Downturn in defense industry, with concerns of sequestration.

Advice to Management

Speed up HR process for internal hires. Act quicker to send employees that are not hacking it (or a good fit) to different organizations or eliminate their job. Too many bad apples throughout the company can bring down the morale of organizations.

    Pros

    Flex hours, benefits, people are good to work with

    Cons

    Not enough training, go to management with problems nothing is done. HR could care less...

    Advice to Management

    Management is scared to make any moves, employees having problems go to the manager and nothing is done. Management just puts everything under the rug. Try standing up for your people, rather than stabbing them in the back.

    Pros

    - great leadership program
    - great financial support for advanced degrees
    - lots of in-house trainings for employees (six sigma, lean thinking, etc.)

    Cons

    - a bit slow moving
    - low incentive to get a lot done
    - confined to process because "that's how we've always done it"

    Advice to Management

    - create quicker turnaround time for projects to engage the younger workforce.
    - compensate based on whether things are moving the needle vs. time served @ company.
