    I have been working at USRA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Everything is dependent on your supervisor's opinion and funding situation, including title, salary, promotion, training, conference... Staffs are very amenable and high-efficient on processing request.

    Cons

    The vacation/sick days are significantly less than university compares.

    I have been working at USRA full-time

    Pros

    The place is very friendly and with great salary and benefits. They are continuing to offer new perks every year. It's a strange non-profit company but seems like a business so any extra profit goes back into it's employees or programs. Very flexible with your schedule and time off!!!

    Cons

    It's a company that does well on the merits of a small group of employees winning government projects so that can be a little nerve-wracking.

    Pros

    Efficient administration, HR is very responsive and open to comments. Good benefits. Great colleagues. Good salary.

    Cons

    Stability is too dependent on aerospace projects, which are seeing a decline over the course of time.

    Advice to Management

    No complaints.

    I have been working at USRA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked on lots of interesting projects that were exciting and creative

    Cons

    Not a stable job due to funding being sporadic

    Advice to Management

    Keep the excitement might need to pay someone to constantly write proposals to keep funding steady
