I have been working at Ball Aerospace full-time (More than 10 years)
Get to contribute to space exploration, weather satellites and national defense projects, whether directly or indirectly. The company keeps all employees informed and aware of our failures and successes. I really feel like we are one big team working together.
Since relocating the IT department away from Boulder, we aren't quite as connected to the rest of the company. It's a give and take though, because the office is great. And for those of us who don't live close to Boulder, it is nice not having to commute into it.
Advice to Management
We appreciate your efforts. Keep on working to lead and inspire us. Don't let the naysayers get you down. IT departments and people are not easy to manage.

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ball Aerospace (Denver, CO).
The interview process started with HR reaching out to schedule a phone screen with the hiring manager and one other junior manager. The interview was about 45 minutes long and the managers indicated at the end that they planned on conducting an in-person interview. HR got in touch again and said that they would be scheduling travel arrangements within the next week. Unfortunately, I did not hear back from them for 3 weeks. I had to follow up twice in this time period before I finally received travel plans. In-Person interview: The in-person interview started with a brief meeting with an HR representative followed by a panel interview. The panel consisted of 14 people. Each person took turns asking a question from a packet of questions - mainly behavioral questions - and then ranking the responses I gave to the questions. This lasted for approximately two hours and many of the panel members came and went throughout the interview. I was given about 15 minutes to ask my own questions and then given a brief tour by the hiring manager. Feedback: I received no feedback for five weeks at which time HR left a message stating they were going to hire another candidate. Impressions: The long lag time between each phase of the interview communicated that they weren't serious about me from the outset. The large interview panel was unwieldy at times and didn't allow the interview to flow like a conversation. It was also unclear who were the decision the makers in the room and who was just there to observe. The large panel probably contributed to the long lag time between each interview phase. Overall, other aerospace companies I've interviewed with and worked for have much more efficient processes than Ball.
