Glassdoor is your free inside look at United Launch Alliance reviews and ratings — including employee satisfaction and approval rating for United Launch Alliance CEO Michael Gass. All reviews posted anonymously by United Launch Alliance employees.
Current Employee – been working at United Launch Alliance
Pros – Get to work at the Launch Site. Operational environment. Minimum of politics you would find at a headquarters.
Cons – More favoritism to heritage Lockheed vs. Boeing. Company is more like an extension of Lockheed than a merger of Lockheed and Boeing. Limited vertical mobility at Launch sites.
Advice to Senior Management – Work on retaining personnel between 5 and 20 years. You can't do everything with all new college grads. You need to keep some of the old hands to teach the new guys. Layoffs have eliminated the younger more aggressive hourly personnel in favor of older less aggressive hourly workers who have the greatest seniority. More experienced expensive engineers have been cut while keeping the younger crowd. Now have bad combination of old techs and young engineers. Need more of a mix of hourly and salaried.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
