    I have been working at Cosmic AES full-time for 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.

    Pros

    * Work feels very meaningful * Opportunity to learn and work outside of your area of expertise * Very knowledgeable co-workers and management to learn from * Company leaders are very approachable * Fair salary * Company seems to be on-track for a long and successful future with plenty of growth

    Cons

    * Pay period is monthly and not biweekly (non-issue with some minor personal budgeting)

    Advice to Management

    Continue to define more concrete company standards regarding GUI layouts, code reuse/modularity, and general practices.

    I have been working at Cosmic AES full-time

    Pros

    - Smaller company with a plan for controlled growth. - Family-like atmosphere, leadership communicates effectively. - Values creativity and innovation. - Benefits are better than the industry norm. - Cosmic is engaged in the community and values community support.

    Cons

    - Pay is once a month at the beginning of the month... Not a real axe to grind because at the end of the month it all comes out the same.
