Run don't walk away from Orbital at NASA Sounding Rocket Contract

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Wallops Island, VA

I have been working at Orbital Sciences

ProsGet to see many rockets go through the complete lifecycle from design to launch, A machine shop is at your disposal

ConsOrbital management at NSROC believes that the job is everyone's top priority, Work life balance is not considered, Management criticize each other behind each other's backs, Worst review and raise of my career, I'm learning how to not manage an organization but would rather be learning how to manage an organization, I have 0 respect for NSROC management, Overtime is the solution for every schedule constraint

Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that the work force will work most efficiently when they're working 40 hrs. per week. Overtime is a short term solution not a long term fix. Don't criticize each other in front of the work force.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
