    I worked at Cimarron Software Services full-time

    Pros

    NASA is cool. Space Industry is exciting.

    Cons

    I had a really negative experience with this company. I didn't think it was a very transparent place to work. I had a very aggressive exit interview even though I performed really well in my job and represented that company well. I felt I had to be defensive just off of the conversation in my exit interview. Ultimately though, you pay to work for NASA. I didn't feel my pay reflected my ability well and that is ultimately what made me leave the company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be aggressive in face to face talks. Be more transparent with your employees. (Not that this will make a difference) Pay your employees better, even if it's a bump in benefits. At least pay according to their background.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to network with employees at NASA in Clear Lake if that is where you want to go in your career.

    Cons

    Growth is slow, and corporate culture is slow to adapt.

    Advice to Management

    More Young people and more innovation

    I worked at Cimarron Software Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Incredibly talented group of developers and engineers, and the most personable and knowledgeable HR staff I've ever worked with. The work on most contracts are challenging and engaging, and promote good career growth.

    Cons

    As with any NASA contractor, the pendulum of job stability can swing wildly from year to year or even month to month due to factors outside of your control. Always expect the unexpected and be prepared to move on if needed.

    Advice to Management

    Aggressively expand and diversify your client base. Promote as much visibility as you can between the business office and the practitioners, and frequently encourage feedback from all employees.

    I have been working at Cimarron Software Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Cimarron has deep talent in multiple engineering and operations areas. The management and corporate team are very responsive; I can contact anyone in HR or Finance or on the Executive team and they will respond. Cimarron is aggressively seeking growth opportunities for the company and its employees. I like the regular company all hands meetings that provide useful info. Salaries are industry competitive but what makes the difference are the people!

    Cons

    I can't think of any, really. It's a tough industry right now but that's not a knock on Cimarron, just a fact of business for all aerospace companies.

    Advice to Management

    Stay available, keep communicating. We have a great workforce and we appreciate the care and recognition. More parties, please.

    Pros

    - Average Benefits

    Cons

    - Little contact or direction (which might be a pro...)

    Advice to Management

    - Don't know, worked out of state on a contract and only met with cimarron co-workers on the same project. Contract management would come out every 6 months or so to check in and take us to dinner.

    Pros

    Management team is great. They are progressive and forward thinking with regards to technology, approaches and people. The company as a whole continues to expand with new and interesting opportunities across the US.

    Cons

    The corporate offices are old, but I think they are moving soon.

    Missed out on a few opportunities recently, but this was more about the philosophy and integrity of leadership, as opposed to skills of the workforce.

    Advice to Management

    Keep thinking of new ways to keep the core staff engaged and happy. Overall, this company is great to work for.
