    I have been working at United Launch Alliance full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Pay and Benefits, work/life balance. Downsizing has created unique career opportunities. ULA has made big investments to make sure we have the right leadership.

    Cons

    Old processes and requirements have been slow to evolve.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the right people via succession plans and career development opportunities.
