Orbital is a great place to work.

Marketing (Current Employee)
Greenbelt, MD

ProsI have the flexibility to manage work and home responsibilities. My management understands the difficulties with juggling a family and work assignments. I have enough authority to get my assignments completed. I enjoy my job and have fun.

Our management works very hard to maintain and support our staff. The management works hard to retain personnel as one contract transitions into a follow on contract.

ConsOur division is very dependent on the government budgets. Thus, our future work is not very well defined. We need more social activities! I enjoy seeing my co-workers outside of the office.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore Social Activities! How about free breakfast on Fridays?

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Need to understand that new talent out of school is NOT going to go for 1970's management… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
