    Pros

    This company offered opportunities for advancement, training in subjects outside normal job duties, teamwork challenges and goals and objectives for groups and individuals. Reviews were frequent and constructive.

    Cons

    At times, the organizational charts seemed top-heavy, but not to the detriment of working individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Not required, company has dissolved with the end of the Shuttle Program.

    Pros

    This wasn't just a company, it was family. We worked hard together and played hard together. Yes there were some hair brained execs up top, but the people that made history, the managers, the techs, the hands-on workers ... they were the best.

    Cons

    The company's usefulness is done now that the Shuttle program is complete. There is no way they can compete now that they have lost the talent of the workforce.
