    I have been working at Orbital Sciences full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Definintely opportunity to advance your career and work on some really great programs.

    Cons

    Orbital is a smaller aerospace company with a different culture than other companies I have worked for which has it's advantages but allows too much personal preference by senior management in terms of policy and process decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little time on the floor and talk to your employees. Pay employees who travel for work sacrafice time away from family and home the full government per diem rate that they are entitled to.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Orbital Sciences full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Orbital is in a unique middle-ground when it comes to aerospace & defense companies - not too big, not too small. Big enough to have good benefits and opportunities, but not so big that individuals get lost in the machine

    Cons

    A 'lean' low-cost emphasis means the support infrastructure and management approaches are not exactly cutting edge - or rocket science! There is not a lot of transparency 'up the chain'. The CEO Dave Thompson is a pretty good communicator but things are more opaque below him.
