    "They promise promotions, but won't tell you what is needed to achieve the promotion, and they rarely deliver."

    Former Employee - Project Leader in Chantilly, VA

    I worked at The Aerospace Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are experts on any kind of technology.

    Cons

    There are too many middle managers with little responsibility. There are no opportunities for growth. Negotiate the salary you need when you are hired, because you will never get a raise while you work there.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more valuable feedback, help them develop performance plans that lead to raises. Quit taking advantage of your employees and offering nothing in return.

    Pros

    Aero.Corp. plays a very important role in the acquisition of government satellites, which can be very rewarding. The company has an outstanding reputation.

    Cons

    Because many staff have been in place for decades, there is little room for advancement. Being tied to the DOD places extreme limitations on salary and other benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people fairly and recognize them for their hard work. Without the infusion of good young people the corporation will be a difficult position in the next 5-10 years.
