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

Pros

Orbital 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.

Cons

You 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.

    I worked at Orbital Sciences full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked with a lot of great people who were brilliant and friendly. The work was very interesting and challenging.

    Cons

    My wife didn't want to live in Virginia, so I found employment elsewhere. Outside of that, not too much bad to say.
