Great company overall
Principal Engineer (Former Employee), Tewksbury, maSeptember 22, 2014
Pros: great work environment, and high standard of work ethics.
Cons: widespread, distances ...
The company adheres to the highest standards of work ethics.
The company cares and provides for the individual employee welfare and balance between work/life.
Workloads are fairly divided to suit workers abilities, expertise and life.
Due to the distances between facilities, however, communications, coordination are somewhat limited to emails, 'IM' – more... ... This affects somewhat the cultural homogeneity of the technical groups.
Overall, it's a great company to work for and be proud of. – less

Fine company with challenging projects.
Senior Test Engineer (Former Employee), Andover, MASeptember 10, 2014
Pros: plenty of fun projects.
Cons: unstable, because projects depend on funding from dod.
Fun place to work, great people. I learned quite a bit about Radars, and all aspects of Test Engineering. Management is a bit removed from the everyday struggles. My co-workers were friendly and eager to share knowledge for the most part. The hardest part of the job was dealing with hourly employees because they belong in the Union, and they sometimes – more... get in the way or performing duties. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that what I did mattered to our war fighters. – less

Good Company Headed in Wrong Direction
Engineer (Current Employee), Aurora, COSeptember 1, 2014
Pros: decent pay, good job security
Cons: work/life balance is very poor
There has been a significant shift in the corporate management of the Aurora CO campus in the last two years. Benefits have been significantly reduced. Employees are now seen as replaceable tools instead of essential members of an engineering team. The new corporate management culture encourages managers to make poor short term decisions to make schedule/budget – more... at the expense of long term project success. This leads to down-stream budget/schedule constraints that are levied onto the workforce, leading to high burn-out rates and low employee retention rates. 50-60 hour work weeks (sometimes uncompensated) are increasingly the norm. There is no sign this is going to change any time soon. This WAS a good company to work for. – less
