Engineering Aide

I worked at Orbital Sciences

Pros

Working with rockets. Great people. Very good training program. Over all, I would go back if I could afford the lower wage.

Cons

Not much to complain about. I would have liked higher wages. The work was good and the people excellent so no real cons.

Advice to Management

Raise wages
