    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Gilbert, AZ (US)

    I have been working at Orbital Sciences full-time for more than 3 years


    Very knowledgeable first-line employees and interesting, challenging work. Very bright engineers in several select groups.


    Since the division in Gilbert, AZ was purchased by Orbital, employee morale has steadily declined. This division is no longer the energetic, fast paced and cohesive team it used to be due to the extremely toxic culture forced upon it by remote upper management in Dulles.

    Pay raises are poor and embarrassing, even for superior performers. NO technical training. Very tight overhead budgets make process improvement difficult. Even simple process improvement initiatives need to be authorized at extraordinarily high levels of management.

    No sense of team or common goals between employees and upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management is unprofessional, not conducive to team building and focuses on negatives instead of accomplishments. There needs to be a significant cultural change for this company to attract and retain the best and brightest.
