I worked at Orbital Sciences full-time for more than a year

Pros

I worked with a lot of great people who were brilliant and friendly. The work was very interesting and challenging.

Cons

My wife didn't want to live in Virginia, so I found employment elsewhere. Outside of that, not too much bad to say.

    I have been working at Orbital Sciences full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Outstanding employer for an entry level hire. Medium sized company with a small company feel provides young engineers exposure to a variety of job functions. Exciting work with high tech product. Opportunities to travel to international launch sites and foreign vendors.

    Cons

    Management is often reactive rather than proactive. Matrix organization with project management needs often conflicting with functional management resources - employees sometimes stuck between the two management groups with no clear direction.

    Pros

    One of the few companies winning NASA contracts and making an attempt in advancing the future of commercial/manned spaceflight

    Cons

    Reporting structure can be geographically challenging

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to dissolve the disconnect between lower level employees and Senior Level mgt. by attempting to interact with them more
