Advice to Management

Keep being honest to employees about the future of their jobs. Once we heard USA was no longer going to bid on new projects, that seemed to be a clue to start looking for new jobs. I wish management would try to evolve USA into other areas. This would possibly save the doomed but good company and save thousands of good jobs.

    Pros

    Pay, benefits and the people. Working in a space program is inspiring work. The people are great to work with , training , tools to do your job are all provided.

    Cons

    Too much paperwork. Sometimes it takes way too long get a project completed. Too many stakeholders. The design process is way too cumbersome and lengthy.

    Advice to Management

    Not much to say now the company is dying a slow death after the cancellation of the space shuttle program

    Pros

    The Flight Crew Equipment department was the best area I ever worked in during my career with USA. The hands-on with flight hardware was a great experience.

    Cons

    There always seemed to have a "mens world" environment lurking in the background.
