    Advice to Management

    Recently employees have been feeling the pressure to perform efficiently. While this is certainly important, there are too many problems with the way efficiency is measured. Also there is the general sense that one mistake is going to cost some people thier job. This creates a very stressful working environment.

    I have been working at Aurora Flight Sciences full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Lots of room for creativity
    - Given lots of responsibility, even as new grad
    - Shorter programs, so work stays different and interesting - NOT repetitive
    - Good starting pay

    Cons

    - Virginia location is so-so - not far from D.C., though
    - Programs are not allocated much time - often times behind schedule on short-term programs
