work at Orbital..

Principal Systems Engineer (Current Employee) Dulles, VA

Pros- Exciting Work, the things you are working on are usually very intresting
- Location is nice
- Nice people

Cons- Not much respect from managment
- Hard if not impossible to get promoted
- Long Hours
- Very Disorganized
- No congradulations when you do a good job

Advice to Senior Management- Communicate more with employees, usually no idea what is going on within your own business group, never mind other business groups.

- When promotions are given make sure it is clear why and that they are the most qualified candidate, often times unqualified "favorites" are promoted and very qualified people are never promoted. I have seen alot of very talented people leave Orbital for this reason
