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.

    Pros

    Aerospace focuses on problem solving for other people, whether it's testing a system to determine why it doesn't work correctly or prototyping a new design to demonstrate the feasibility of doing something. This means the work is constantly changing and requires a wide breadth of knowledge, great for people who like to learn by doing. The work environment is very relaxed and low stress and the benefits are solid. They do their best to take care of employees.

    Cons

    Some projects are uninteresting but necessary. Sometimes you'll get stuck supporting meetings for no particular reason. You need to work on making connections with people that have interesting work so you don't get stuck doing something boring because you need to fill your hours.

    People are rewarded primarily through experience and not as much through merit. While good for building loyalty from long-time employees, it makes it harder to acquire and keep young talent.
