This company has many different projects and manages them quite well. Working in my particular facet of the company has been fun and educational. I have gained invaluable contacts and experience. Management is always available to answer any questions or concerns. I noticed many employees had been able to advance on this contract rather quickly, which was encouraging. The most difficult part of the job has been that I was hired on just before the contract was ending. Luckily I was not put out too much, but others moved to the area specifically for their position, just to be told a week after starting that they will be out of a job in a few months. I don't believe ORAU knew, until they received the official word, that the contract was ending three years earlier than projected. I think they have handled the reduction in force very professionally, providing as much time as they could for their employees to find other employment. I also understand this is the nature of contract work.
