    Nothing is perfect, but a great place to work

    Pros

    The people - best team I've worked with in a long time. Work life balance - the 9/80 schedule is brilliant, plus there is the capacity to work from home if you need to. Great locations and offices. And my manager. Definitely in the grand final of best ever. The vision - they definitely are always looking up and out. I love that.

    Cons

    Branching off from a US company causes some teething problems with Australian processes. Slow at times - approval from the USA - see above re developing processes. But that is absolutely not out of the ordinary for a big company.

    Pros

    Competitive base salary, decent benefits

    Cons

    They’ll nickel and dime you. Base salary is good, but don’t expect any perks - not even coffee in the break room. This is true of all aerospace companies

    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.
