Fairly stable company with decent benefits and work/life balance.
Pros: 9/80 work schedule, tuition assistance
Cons: old school attitudes (mostly older, "lifers" at the company), salary
If you work in a corporate function (e.g. Finance, IT, HR, Communications, Procurement, etc.), there is a good work/life balance, for the most part. I can't speak for the rest of the company, though. Much of the company operates on a 9/80 work schedule, including their Electronic Systems' business sector (headquartered in Nashua, NH) and Land & Armaments – more... sector (headquartered in York, PA). The other business sectors (Intelligence & Support in VA, and Support Solutions in MD) work regular 40-hour week schedules. Insurance benefits are not as good as years past, but the health plan is comparable to many other companies' plans. As of 2014, all US-based employees have the option of 3 different health plans. Also, if you work for the ES or L&A business sectors, your tuition assistance is up to $15k a year (the rest of the company only gets $5,250/year). Also, the company finally began leaning corporate functions 2-3 years ago, so the company is better organized now, with employees now specialized in particular functions.
Salaries are mediocre, unless you did a great job negotiating when you were first hired (or you lucked out with a fantastic, supportive manager). Also, there are still too many layers of management (who knows what some of these people actually do all day?). The workforce is heavily comprised of "lifers", or those who joined the company at age 18 and never left, so there's a certain lack of diversity in that sense. – less
