      I've been dealing with them as a potential partner for the last nine months. For sure they put out good products, but their bureaucracy is the worst I've ever had to deal with. I swear, they must lock up all their smart employees in skunkworks, because I've never seen such a potent combo of arrogance, incompetence, and political frick-frick games as I have with this lot.

      I have to say, whenever I'm at a conference, all the interesting talks are being given by old fricks who forgot to retire or people from RTX.

      Everything in the defense industry (and really aerospace in general) has meh pay. Margins are shit, especially for higher end, lower volume shit like aircraft and engines. Expensive to manufacture, expensive to set up the factory, and despite paying a mediocre wage, you're still paying a lot of money for highly educated individuals to develop shit. Also software licenses are expensive as frick. All of this means that the industry pays like shit to keep some semblance of margins.

          COVID literally fricked the entire state due to California transplants fleeing their shitbox state. Denver has always been expensive, but not to that extent. Colorado Springs was actually very cheap up until 2020, then housing prices went pants on head moronic. The shitbox neighborhood across Academy from Ft. Carson has homes selling for 300k plus. I imagine it will only get worse now that SF Command is officially staying at Peterson instead of moving to Redstone Arsenal.

I didn’t even try talking about such things here because there’s simply no point.

        [...]
        This is generally true albeit a little bit oversimplified. [...] is all true, but I would add that most roles at LM have amazing work-life balance. Depending on the team you can't take your work home and the types of people that gravitate towards defense work also care about having a life defined outside their jobs. My coworkers go hunting, build race cars, and have a generally trad lifestyle despite living in a very liberal city.

        If you're graduating with a BSASE, defense is probably your best option but if you have a BSEE then I would hop to tech in a heartbeat

    IMO just another American tech company which used to rule the world but which has fallen into a competency crisis in recent years. Not that anyone else has taken over the mantle ie they just got out-competed; the big American tech companies are still on top just that there’s a general trend of failure, like a slow-motion collapse. That’s what I think of LM today, I don’t know what caused it or how to fix it only that it’s happening.

      At least one crucial detail about the B-2 is kept secret to this day. I’ll let you guess what it is.

    /k/ what are some upstart american defense companies that are riding the wave of "reindustrialization" and the whole trend of moving manufacturing out of china? I'm not talking old giants like lockheed or boeing, I want new or dormant companies that stand to gain a lot of value relatively (couple years) quickly.

      I have seen 3 different youtubers cover the quarterhorse from hermeus that is suppose to be making a plane faster than the sr-71.

      It's a lot of boasting about how fast and cheap they make everything so I have a lot of doubts that any of it will actually work. Cheap and fast rarely makes anything good.
