In fulfilling this architect-engineer role, aerospace strives to minimize system development and operational risks, which in turn protects acquisition schedules and aids in cost containment.

I will agree with some of your statements. I was denied overtime and eventually laid off because a supervisor boldly stated in a meeting he didnt want a female on his team. Though I filed a EEO complaint everyone was scared to verify his statement. I was eventually rehired after his retirement, but the feeling of being let down was always there. There are allot of great people there and it is a good company. However allot of work needs to be done in EEO. I was again laid off and told to train my replacement, a man. As a former Army Mechanic and truck driver there are still some that do not view a womans work as important.

The management has made it clear that any employee who raises concerns about ethical improprieties that are occurring at the company will be terminated. Senior level executives are compensated inappropriately for a charitable, nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that does not compete for contracts. In 2009, IRS form 990 indicates that $22 million in bonuses was paid to just 8 individuals who had retired from the company several years earlier. This excessive compensation was paid during a year in which the 4000 employees of the company were not given annual merit raises, and were not told the real reason why by the CEO Wanda Austin.
