Featured Review

Current Employee - Engineer

I have been working at Bigelow Aerospace full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Had a few great Holiday parties.

Cons

Most of the reviews here are 100% true. I've worked in the Aerospace industry for 20 years and I have never seen a company like this. I wouldn't even consider this an actual "Aerospace Company". ... There is nothing Aerospace about it, unless you count endless amounts of Models. The company just had a huge lay off blaming the whole COVID19 situation but those of us who worked there saw the writing on the wall almost a year ago. The entire soft good department was let go a few months back and they had the most important job for the company. Most of the time employees pretended to do work or "stay busy". There was never any positive direction here. Instead employees were treated like prisoners and micro managed at ever level. The owner is completely delusion and viewed most to all employees as expendable. There are endless OSHA violations and unsafe working conditions that have been completely ignored by upper management. The actual plant is located in the worst part of Las Vegas, in fact building A has several bullet holes in it from local gang bangers. First impression of Bigelow Aerosapace is a dusty old trailer, something you would find in a used car lot. There is no real future here,I've seen this company ruin many lives and families. stay far away.

Advice to Management

Never open this place back up. Sell the company to a local land dealer and bulldoze the entire location.

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Virgin Galactic full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great C-suite leaders (ie. CEO and other top leaderships - they will literally meet you on day one), Pay, Healthcare, Company Mission, and HR are great. Many people worked within and stay for a long... time get promoted to higher position due to their merit and experience.

Cons

Team Management needs work. Asking others to work overtime and weekend is a norm. If you have family, don't work here. You won't be seeing your daughter or son without a fight. They don't care for... your personal life because they personally don't have one so they expect you to work every single hour they're on the computer.

Advice to Management

Please do a mandatory training for those who have never lead before. Take employees work life balance seriously; that's how you reduce turnover. People join your company because of Branson's values,... so enforce it.
