    I worked at United Space Alliance full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was very interesting work launching people into space for the Shuttle program. The pay, benefits and work atmosphere was excellent. I would do it all again with another program.

    Cons

    When the program is over, you may lose your job. I lost my job with about 10,000 people.

    Advice to Management

    Awesome job and it was nice working with you!

    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.

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