    Pros

    Treat Interns with high respect, offer plenty of support and attention to each intern. Learned a ton on the job and formed numerous friendships to network with across the country.

    Cons

    High expectations for interns (though there are plenty of people to help you figure everything out on the job). They offer freedom to interns so you must be a good problem solver.

    Pros

    Growing fast in aviation market and rapid product development cycles. Lots of project variation. Many resources for talent development and growing career. Good job security and opportunity.

    Cons

    Stressful timeline for development. Always seem to be one or two people short to complete a task as well as possible. Slow to make decisions and lose opportunities.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, ability to learn a little about their codebase and create new applications if you're lucky. Somewhat laid-back work environment.

    Cons

    Dull, repetitive work. Expect to be testing software, not writing it. This could be a perfect fit for you if you work to live, but not if you live to work (or both).

    Advice to Management

    Software testing and monotonous tasks should not be delegated to interns. Interns need to see what they can learn and how they can be creative to contribute to the team.

    Pros

    Lots of exposure to different projects, frequent transitions between them keep work interesting. Edison Program is very valuable.

    Cons

    The field is very specific, so not many skills are applicable outside of the Aerospace industry. Systems code is written in ADA, and most of the job is verification, not actual development.

    Pros

    Exciting aerospace projects to work with and on. Company values employees and tries to do a lot of cook-outs, events, and celebrations. They have a lot of volunteer opportunities to give back to the community. Their goals are very focused. Excellent Pay and benefits. Long-term employment and opportunities to move up.(If you have a degree) Educational benefits up to $5000.00 per year.

    Cons

    Can be hard to work with some employees that have been there for a long time, they are set in their ways and unwilling to change. Management positions are expected to give long hours and no overtime. If in a warehouse/shop environment some of the people can be harsh and rough. A lot of drama. Some shops have unions that are difficult to deal with

    Advice to Management

    Management positions are expected to give long hours and no overtime. Can be hard to work with some employees that have been there for a long time, they are set in their ways and unwilling to change. Plenty of opportunities to move up. They will expect you to change positions ever 2-3 years or else you will be stuck in that role for a long time.
