Orbital Sciences offers a rare opportunity to work on commercial and government spacecraft while living in Washington DC. Finding a job that deals with space hardware around DC is nearly impossible.

Need to network within the company to get promoted.

Improve the employee assessment system.

    I have been working at Orbital Sciences full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Definintely opportunity to advance your career and work on some really great programs.

    Cons

    Orbital is a smaller aerospace company with a different culture than other companies I have worked for which has it's advantages but allows too much personal preference by senior management in terms of policy and process decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Spend a little time on the floor and talk to your employees. Pay employees who travel for work sacrafice time away from family and home the full government per diem rate that they are entitled to.
