Current Employee - Engineering Specialist in El Segundo, CA

I have been working at Aerospace Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Diversity of work, technical challenges, good working conditions, office politics kept to a minimum. Benefits are very good if not great,

Cons

Salary is below par for industry, regular travel required. Workload can vary significantly based on external factors such as delays in Congressional funding. 2012 staff reduction handled very poorly and treated employees in an undignified manner, as senior management let their paranoia run wild and disregarded common sense.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop putting so much emphasis on recording hours. Creates the perception that our only work product is hours recorded.

    I have been working at Aerospace Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Stable career, non-stressful in the engineering group, program office can be hectic.

    Cons

    Extremely risk-adverse company. Employees are considered valuable to company, but management does not show interest in developing and helping employees grow their careers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more accessible to those who work for you. Also provide benefits such as tele-work to be consistent with industry trends.

    Former Employee - Systems Engineer + Software in El Segundo, CA

    I worked at Aerospace Corporation as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Get in at 9, leave by 5. Fridays are relaxed days. Not a very fast paced environment, relaxing if you have a life outside of work.

    Cons

    Not faced paced, you most likely won't be inspired by what you see here on a day to day basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give more healthy snacks, enough with the donuts! Also, spend time encouraging your employees of ways to improve their own careers and empower them to strive for more.
