    Current Employee - Principal Engineer in Chandler, AZ

    I have been working at Orbital Sciences full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great environment, great work opportunities, great co-workers, and the management is technically competent. Lots of opportunities to work on tough problems.

    Cons

    Most of the managers at Orbital are not skilled at management. Orbital adheres to the failed practice of promoting only technically competent engineers to management positions. In addition, most of the engineers they promote to management have a tendency to be arrogant and rude. They make decisions without considering long term effects and impacts to employee morale. Employee suggestions and feedback are not just discarded, but I've seen cases where these are mocked by the managers in front of other employees.

    Despite the poor management, the pros of this job exceed the cons. This unfortunately results in very few opportunities for technical advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish clear expectations and consequences for managers at all levels. Send all managers to management training / interpersonal communication training. If the managers fail to meet the defined expectations, then apply the associated consequences.
