Pros

Really enjoyed working there. Nice people, good communication with management. Was happy with the projects we accomplished in working toward successful safe space missions.

Cons

Very poor pay comparison to outside the government contractor arena. Found out severely underpaid when time came to leave for new pastures.

Advice to Management

Very impressed with way management kept employees informed toward end of program. Need to remember the lessons about what happened the last time there was brain drain in the space industry. You are loosing alot of people that now KNOW they are severely underpaid and it will be very hard to get them to come back in a couple of years.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Pride working in the space industry and the very knowledgeable co-workers that shared their experience. The pay scale was above-average and the benefits were good.

    Cons

    The space shuttle program ended prior to USA securing contracts to retain the experienced workforce that wanted to stay in the area.

    Advice to Management

    USA's upper management did not make the commitment to secure other contracts outside the space industry. Effort should be made to win contracts to help people get re-employed.
