    I have been working at Cosmic AES full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The work is real, unquestionably valuable to the mission, and results are foremost in the minds of all employees. This is no place for playing games on company time, but rather a place where the mission is so challenging that you become immersed in the goals.

    Cons

    Cosmic AES does work for the government! Therefore there are many extra rules and burdens imposed by the government. They aren't excessive and generally don't interfere, but they are there.

    Advice to Management

    Give a little, get a bit more! Rules are good, but they might stifle some.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cosmic AES in April 2016.

    Interview

    HR contacted me requesting an interview following initial contact at a job fair. I met the hiring authority at the company's main office who was very personable and provided a lot of background information about the company and job. The interview was somewhat informal which I appreciated because it put me at ease right away and we were able to have a good conversation about what the job entailed and expectations for the selected candidate. Overall great experience and I would recommend this company interested in this line of work.
