    J'ai travaillé chez Virgin Galactic à temps partiel moins d'un an

    Avantages

    Provided food sometimes, and some AC when they let you

    Inconvénients

    Hot location, management was hypocritical and micromanagey and their criticism was in no way constructive or respectful, overloaded the test site including the septic system

    Je travaille chez Virgin Galactic à temps plein depuis moins d'un an

    Avantages

    Was hired on full time in December of 2017, the relationship between myself and the company has been great. I know a lot of companies preach about work/life balance and treating employees right, but this company actually does it. My coworkers have been awesome, and it's to the point where we actually hang out with each other away from work, share stories, get to know each other's families, etc. Inside FAITH we don't... have walls to separate each others workspace, it truly is an open environment and it makes communication so much easier.

    Inconvénients

    Not really anything, except it's windy outside, but nobody can control mother nature (lol).

    Conseils à la direction

    Avantages

    The people, they make you feel welcome from the moment you walk in the door, you feel not just like you are part of an amazing company with an incredible future (which you are) but that you are part of a family that truly cares and supports each other. Everyone truly wants to help and support all other team members. Virgin Galactic truly embodies the team mentality and has a passion for making sure each team member... has everything that they need, from the CEO and President to each and every person everyone is supportive of you.

    J'ai travaillé chez Virgin Galactic à temps plein

    Avantages

    A wildly inspiring project. You work next to a freaking spaceship! And the company has a genuine mission to change the world and have fun doing it. Some crazy smart people from awesome backgrounds. Richard Branson is an awesome person to work for!

    Inconvénients

    Having such a hard time meeting schedule is a real grind. Can lead to a grim atmosphere at times. We need to get that bird up in the air! Living in Mojave or in Las Cruces can be tough on family. In-fighting between senior management gets really annoying.

    Conseils à la direction

    Get rid of senior managers who take more off the table than they bring to it. When you have two senior managers who disagree, choosing between them is hard—but not choosing can be even worse. Throw every resource you have at creating a schedule that will actually be right this time--and at sticking to it.

    Train your managers. Select managers for their ability to relate to people not technical leadership

    Avantages

    When I joined the culture was fun, nice location, nice people, smart engineers and an exciting project.

    Inconvénients

    How do such smart engineers continue to believe such a small rocket with limited margins of payload is EVER going to orbit? The Boeing people won't even test because big box company execs don't take risks at startups. Then again, what makes anyone think VG is a start up? It's an LLC for crying out loud. It's a holding company for Branson brand promotion like Hyperloop and Cosmic 747's that pose as first stage... boosters... sadly, with lots of people on board. It's ridiculous that this company houses so many well educated engineers that apparently just take the money. There's no serious engineering going on here. I mean come on it's a big marketing PR scam.

    Dérouler

    Conseils à la direction

    Just keep doing what you are doing. SpaceX was a grind so take the free paycheck and cash it for as long as they'll pay you- no reason to tell them it's a money pit. Then again, where is your pride as an engineer? You wanted to do something and you're floundering there because it's an easy pay check? If acting like a rocket scientist is your thing then Hollywood is only 10 miles away.

    J'ai travaillé chez Virgin Galactic à temps plein moins d'un an

    Avantages

    - Great coworkers - 9/80 work schedule allows for much needed down time - It’s a job involving space!

    Inconvénients

    - Untrusting management leads to constant micromanagement - Unprofessional/lack of leadership - No budget creates a constant reactionary environment - A career quagmire - Due to above aforementioned most projects are completed to get them done rather than completing a project correctly.

    Conseils à la direction

    Actually provide some form of leadership rather than passive aggressive retaliation.

    Avantages

    Benefits and a 9/80 work schedule that's gets you a three-day weekend twice a month. Also a benny card that comes in handy to cover co-pays.

    Inconvénients

    Micro-manager type leadership but yet unqualified to even handle a password reset and an HR Dept. that is not even qualified to deal with a soda can

    Conseils à la direction

    Top level needs to go. They know there is a repeat pattern going on for over 5 years, yet they don't care. This affects people's lives how badly they get treated. Do the right thing!
