      Fluctuates between a life-life balance or a work-work balance, but rarely a work-life balance.

      Pros

      - very flexible work schedules, Fridays are very slow and relaxed which is nice - remote positions are available - great diversity and a lot of women in leadership positions - Room for creativity and new innovations but rarely resources and buy-in to make them happen. - no unlimited PTO BUT flexible work arrangements and 9/80 schedules allow for hours to be met up front and long weekends without using your PTO - very friendly environment and overall a positive work-environment

      Cons

      - outdated pay scale and inconsistent pay per title between sectors and individuals within the same position - unspoken understanding that you have to leave the company to get a pay bump - promotion/compensation bonuses are entirely subjective depending on your relationship with your manager - outdated hierarchical model/org structure - the company preaches agile but not known to "flip the org chart" as business owners/executives opinions/ subjectivity influence and dictate new features and innovations in programs that are not directly involved with external customers.

      Growth opportunity, lack of flexibility

      Nov 29, 2021 - Senior Principal Program Planning Scheduling Analyst in Melbourne, FL

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Plenty of growth opportunity with large programs. Great 401k match program. Opportunity for bonuses at level 3 and above, not just management.

      Cons

      Lack of flexibility. Have to use your own vacation time for sick time. CEO states this is a “work from facility” corporation giving limited flexibility for working parents who will need to take vacation time when a child is sick versus being able to work from home for that period of time.
