I worked at Sigma Space full-time (More than 3 years)
Staff, flexibilty, benefits, and environment... Most of the people that I worked with at Sigma Space were really great people who I got along with well and felt comfortable talking to about projects, life, and responsibilites. My hours for my team were flexible, and if I needed time off to attend to my daughter or take care of a personal issue, they understood and allowed me to make up hours. The Benefits for the company were strong and the environment allowed me to grow quickly and feel comfortable as I did so.
Salary and lack of support... At times I felt like I was being underpaid for the work that I was doing with the company. But I was brought in right out of college for my first job and I cant complain because they took a chance on me and gave me the tools that I needed when asked. When I asked for a raise, I was given it (Maybe not to what I was looking for, but it helped nonetheless) In terms of my position with the company, I was on an island. I was brought in as an intern, and didnt have and senior leadership or anybody to work with. I had to learn and grow on my own. Depending on the person that can be a good thing or bad, but I was able to put my head down and adapt well, learn on my own, and grow substantially during my time.
Advice to Management
In terms of my position with the company and the situations that I was apart of, the communication needed to be stronger. Expectations are set, but PMs and managers just let their employees do what they need and are given too much freedom. They put the responsibility on the employee to communicate to them. If I was managing a project, I would want to check in more frequently and see status updates more often. Set deadlines to push employees. Things can get too lax, deadlines can be missed, and projects get taken away when employees don't even know whats going on.
