    I have been working at Orbital Sciences full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Venue is in a good part of town, close to freeway and quick access to the 347 freeway for Maricopa. Execs are trying to hold on to reasonable benefits despite changes in health care. If you are expanding your family most of your hospital visit is covered. Orbital ATK merger has a chance of improving the company.

    Cons

    Orbital does not invest enough in new technology and leans out the IT staff until it is critically thin. It has much to do with the top management starting at the CIO. You won't get the hardware and software approved by the CIO that you need to create a well performing network and then you will be scorned when it does not perform.
    To survive you will need to be really awesome at telling everyone you are awesome. Even then, keep your stills current and resume up to date. Orbital expects every kind of certification before you are hired and then after you get the job do not want to keep you current. If you don't advance yourself and keep your skills current nobody will help you. There is little hope of advancement mainly because once you are hired there is no place to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a new CIO from an outside source before the Orbital ATK merger. The current CIO values bureaucracy and process over people. The current CIO if he gets the "Orbital ATK CIO Job" will turn happy people at ATK with good jobs into a skeleton crew of over worked miserable people. "Orbital ATK" has a chance to be a better company after the merger but if the same wolves run the show, it will be worse and even more impersonal that before. Train people so well that they could work any place they wanted but treat them so well that they would never want to leave.
