Pros

The culture is geared towards progress. Communication is very easy between every employee and management. Plenty of work when you want it, and plenty of time off when you don't. Pay is comparable, but could be better. Excellent facilities, personnel and aircraft. One of the best places to be a flight instructor or mechanic. Team effort around every corner with management willing to listen to ideas to improve.

Cons

Due to significant size growth, there are still some growing pains dealing with how to ensure everyone gains the skills they need on time. Pay is ok, but hard to build a family or gain a safety net. Benefits are basic. Politics play a significant role in a number of career progressions. Being in an academic field, most employees are hired from the inside, and are colleagues from classes and clubs. Location can have hostile weather in the winter and heat of summer.

Advice to Management

While benefits are better than some, there is a large amount of room to take care of employees better. Those that stay for years tend to become disenfranchised with career progression at UND Aerospace.
