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

I have been working at United Launch Alliance

Pros

Best rocket launch company in the world. Amazing team who love what they do. Great work life balance. Company stresses family first mentality. Orders for years to come.

Cons

If you’re not an engineer, it’s hard to move up. Very few job openings. Pay is average.

Advice to Management

Bring back pensions. Give more opportunities to your employees to move up or continue to lose them to competitors.
