Excellent experience, fast paced environment, and the chance to put rockets in space.

Engineer (Current Employee) Los Angeles, CA

ProsHigh level of exposure, high level of engagement. You work on programs that are changing the face of humanity and space flight. It feels like you are back in the Apollo days.

ConsTerrible organization. Schedules are all over the place, you can work insane hours due to a lack of planning and transparency.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe transparent. Understand the issues each employee has and relay up to CEO. Schedules can be aggressive, but they need to be reachable too.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
