Sperry develop critical navigation software for large Naval and Merchant shipping. Code quality is of paramount importance. Their process for mainiting their solution is the best I have seen in my 25 years working in Development BYFAR This means their code does not age by allowing 'hacks' The bug checking is excellent. So you can look at complex multi threded 15 year old code and it is still pristine - not hacked to death - which is why most code bases age and have to be retired.

Rules only seem to apply to a few employees, pay rises are awarded based on favour rather than performance. If you think you have performed well, forget about it a small issue you make will completely eclipse anything you do to try to rectify it.
Pros
Training was often
Cons
Long hours, Little to no recognition, hypocritical office management

Management scared to take responsibility,make a decision. Prone to blaming workers in the lower ranks than be accountable. There is no real management! Not sure what is your HR file! Typical day at work is watching your back. Hardest part of the job is doing the job as there is not much support and the culture. Enjoyable part of the job is I get to go home. Can't trust the people.
Pros
Industry
Cons
Management & Culture

Very old style of doing business, lot of waste - time, effort. Lack of joined up thinking, working in Silos. German team is outstanding but not given enough credit.

Poor management and supervision. promises were made which were not delivered. Northrop Grumman has a rich history but yet to establish itself in the UK hence the poor management.
Pros
Opportunities to progress
Cons
Poor management

• Typical day’s work would be to carry out Low Level Design (LLD) Architectural Design for NATO Intrusion Detection Protection systems (IDPS), which incorporate the complete End To End design of their Fibre Network, IP, SDH, DWDM and core networks. • In this role I learned a lot due to the variance of technological applications that are carried out in the field • No management duties were required in this role. The only management carried duties carried out was work load and time. • Co-worker are very friendly and co-operative, always willing to share their knowledge to those who are less knowledgeable in the field that they are experts in. • I find that the hardest thing about this job was to collate the require information from some departments due to their hours and distance that they worked from. • Due to my love of technology I find all section of this role enjoyable; from start to finish.
Pros
There are no pros in this role, due to the size of the location. No restaurant or cafeteria on site.
Cons
the distance that I had to travel everyday, didn't make life easy at all.
