    I worked at Orbital ATK full-time

    Pros

    Interesting projects and room for growth. Lots of locations and you get to contribute to the space industry in a significant way.

    Cons

    Not the most exciting workplace. It can be hard to get people to complete tasks for you— for example, signing off on an analysis, you often have to ask multiple times before it’ll be approved.

    Pros

    Great collaborative people to work with. Frequently promotes from within.

    Cons

    Work life balance needs attention especially in Corporate functions. The acquisition by Northrop Grumman will bring additional change on the heels of the Orbital and ATK merger.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Schedule is relatively nice, and lots of opportunity.

    Employees are constantly forced overtime. You WILL work 60 hours a week your first year until you get seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Help the morale by showing consideration to employees. Employees shouldn't just be warm bodies.

    Pros

    Orbital ATK has great employees. It offers a strong benefits package. 9 80 program and flexibility allow for a good quality of life.

    The company doesn't provide many opportunities for advancement. The culture is resistant to change. Pay is not competitive. Policies prevent equitable adjustments.

    Create an environment where changes and improvement can be welcomed and encouraged. Be willing to pay employees going market rate.
