Great Medium Sized Company

Intern (Current Employee)
Chandler, AZ (US)

I have been working at Orbital Sciences as an intern for less than a year

ProsOrbital is still a small enough company where a person see a component come to life from design, to test, to final vehicle integration. My hourly salary was pretty competitive, if not one of the better wages for mechanical engineering in great Phoenix area.

ConsYou live in Chandler.
Orbital hires the best and brightest, employees can be a little socially awkward. I felt a little isolated because I didn't really have much in common with the other interns who were hired.
Had feeling that many people at Orbital are what you would call 'straight-laced', not as many people going out for happy hours or social events after work.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
