I worked at Aurora Flight Sciences

Pros

Flexible schedule, people were great to work with, and cutting edge technology!

Cons

Frequent leadership changes and license sharing

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire CAD programmers to ease the load of the engineers and let the engineers do what they're trained to... design, analyze, and build!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recently employees have been feeling the pressure to perform efficiently. While this is certainly important, there are too many problems with the way efficiency is measured. Also there is the general sense that one mistake is going to cost some people thier job. This creates a very stressful working environment.

    I worked at Aurora Flight Sciences as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    People here take pride in their work. Since the company is small, there are many opportunities available on what you are able to do. As an intern, I was about to get a lot of good hands on experience working on things that matter and end up on the final product.

    Cons

    The company is still somewhat small so having access to resources is sometimes a problem like having the latest software and hardware as soon as I need it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. The employee monthly luncheons are great as well as the good value cafeteria.
