      Business Outlook

      Pros

      People oriented, offers great training opportunities, personnel retention is important to the company, salaries are on the higher end, promotion opportunities are excellent.

      Cons

      Not many cons to speak of. Only complaint is the lack of sick time and the holiday schedule does not align with Lockheeds holiday schedule. Those arent deal breakers generally considering the higher pay scale in comparison.
