Very High Coolness Factor
Digital Design FPGA Engineer (Current Employee) – Centennial, CO – April 12, 2015
Great top level management, never a shortage of work to be done, very cool spacecraft electronics programs. The owners and vice presidents are a pleasure to work with, and do a very good job keeping forward moving progress. It would be nice if some of the recommendations and warnings of upcoming issues and needs were better heeded by middle management, but they appear to be improving as well. While peer reviews are commonplace, input and comments/concerns about management or outdated policies are neither sought nor heard. All in all, a good place to work, especially of coming in as a new hire. Once tenured, raises get much smaller as expectations get much greater. Could be that way everywhere, but as many say, "At least Im not at Lockheed anymore", it could be worse to work elsewhere.
good job security, challenging designs and projects, good company family owners
poor overall average work/life balance, little support in the midst of overly aggressive schedules, coworkers can busroll and be cut throat with their own team members, average to below average compensation and raises
