    I worked at Orbital ATK full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great projects / cool work
    Very talented engineers

    Cons

    Awful benefits (health care is the worst I've ever had)
    Very poor management - particularly top management
    You are set up to fail - management and programs have high expectations, but you will not get the support you need including technical, subK, purchasing etc
    Penny wise, pound foolish
    Silos/over-specializes employees

    Pros

    The pay is fairly decent.

    Cons

    If you aren’t an engineer you are a nobody. The structure here is so unorganized. Upper management wants things done but do not give instructions on how to do it. I hate this place.

    Advice to Management

    Pretend you give a hoot about your employees.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Orbital ATK full-time

    Pros

    Culture is improving every day with values like trust, communication, enjoyment, motivation, empowerment. A lot of opportunities as many long-time employees are retiring.

    Cons

    There is some negativity from employees who feel the effects of many benefit "take-sways" over the years.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the workforce. Don't let the acquisition take away the things that are great about Orbital ATK (empowerment, agility)
