An Insider's view of The Aerospace Corporation

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

It has been my experience over the past 6 years that we have an excellent work/life balance. Our product is our expertise, so individuals are recognized and valued for the unique perspective they bring to the table. I’ve never felt like “just a number”, and with that understanding comes a flexibility to my work schedule that I really appreciate.

Matt

Manager, Integrated Sensor Design and Analysis Department

How does the company support your career growth?

Aerospace encourages each employee’s ability to learn and grow by nurturing a diverse environment of technical expertise. We have subject matter experts in every topic that involves space launch (and much more!) who are easy to locate, access, engage, and collaborate with to develop and create career growth opportunities.

Pavel

Sr. Member of Technical Staff, Structural Systems

What is your vision for the company?

At Aerospace, we encourage every employee to bring their unique perspectives and experiences to work to help us deliver on our role as the nation’s trusted partner, solving the hardest problems for the preeminent space enterprise.

Todd

Sr. Vice President, Engineering and Technology

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I think of my career as a journey filled with personal growth; rather than a sequence of titles. I’ve worked with a diverse group of individuals over time, which has helped me realize the power of seeing the possibilities and potential in everyone. Sure, my career has grown in title and responsibility, but the real growth has been in me.

Rosalind

Principal Director, Systems Engineering Division

Where we are

Aerospace is headquartered in El Segundo, less than a mile from the beach. We are close to the 405 and 105, and one block from the Green Line.
