Very good company, great products and projects to work on
SENIOR MANUFACTURING ENGINEER II (Former Employee), Tucson, AZAugust 19, 2014
Pros: job satisfaction, customer satisfaction, work schedule
Cons: demanding work schedule, product quality, supplier quality
A typical work day involved working on detailed information with various weapons projects. The work schedule was (5) 9 hour days
and (4) 9 hour days, resulting in every other Friday off. Management from the top down was excellent, and focused on the customer and products. Co-workers were dedicated and focused, and very willing to work together on projects.

The – more... hardest part of the job was learning a new MRP system by SAP/Prism. It was worthwhile because it ensured accuracy in all phases of manufacturing.

The most enjoyable part of the job was customer satisfaction. The customers lives depended on these products, which only had to work once, but their lives depended on the product working as designed. – less

Administrative Associate (Former Employee), Fort Wayne, INAugust 18, 2014
While I was only an administrative support specialist, it was still a nice experience. Upward mobility and human resources (appropriate job placement for personnel, specifically) were lacking, but the company seemed like it was a pleasant place to work.

Nepotism and Cronyism abounds
Senior Systems Administrator Engineer (Former Employee), Dulles, VAAugust 10, 2014
It's either their way or the highway. Management is chosen not by abilities, but by nepotism, cronyism and willingness to work over 40 hours.
