    "Astrotech Corporate Office"

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Being in a small company will allow you to shine in multiple areas if you can wear numerous hats. Growth potential is very strong and opportunities are everywhere. Great benefits and compensation.

    Cons

    Management can be a little difficult to effectively communicate with. Long hours are required due to wearing multiple hats and working for several subsidiaries.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at ASTC part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Company in transition with cash and an interest in change. Something big has to occur soon and being a part of the change might be stimulating to your career.

    Cons

    Company in transition without a clear path to value. A sharp change in direction might result in a dislocation, termination, or require a substantially different career focus.

    Advice to Management

    Leverage existing cash and public market access to reverse merge with a growing upstart.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at ASTC full-time

    Pros

    Easy work; they don't expect much of their employees. Benefits are decent (401K).

    Cons

    Low pay, poor management that does not pay much attention, location is difficult to get to (middle of nowhere),slow moving when it comes to trying to get work done (typical of Aerospace industry)

    Advice to Management

    Focus on keeping up with the industry (Space X) and work on incentives for employees.
