Check in with interns and get feedback from them to see how they're doing

    Pros

    Very familial culture; employees seem to really value work-life balance and treat each other as more than just co-workers. When it came time to get the job done, I worked effectively with other engineers on the team. But when there was time to relax at lunch, it was always enjoyable to unwind with the team. I think there is an *effective* balance between work and life at the Aerospace Corporation.

    The work *potentially* (see Cons) is very interesting and even as an intern, pay and benefits seemed to be above-average. Also, you are part of a historically important organization in the technical heritage of the U.S. that is respected by military and policymakers, if that appeals to you.

    Cons

    I said that the work is potentially interesting because I did not have a security clearance. The true application/purpose of my project was never disclosed to me, as a result. Aerospace Corporation seems to have a more "old-school" feel to it--more older engineers.

    The future of space systems is highly uncertain at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Need to create a more high-pressure, dynamic, work environment if you want to attract new graduates. Work/life balance is important, but you need to hold employees accountable for staying up-to-date with the latest technologies.

    Pros

    The Aerospace Corporation has really good management, and super flexible hours. Unlike most engineering companies, engineers at the Aerospace Corporation do not work long hours.

    Cons

    Because it is a Federally funded research and development center, there is not much room to grow in terms of the business side.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a great job. The average employee age there is 55, so they are obviously doing something right, good work.
