Fun place to work at. Interesting culture.
AVIONICS ELECTRICAL ENGINEER - Technical Lead (Current Employee) –  Palmdale, CAMarch 1, 2015
Interesting place to work. Lots of younger, highly energetic folks with limited real world experience.
Learned how to design, test, and certify LRUs and aircraft for space operations

Hardest part was to fit into the commercial mindset.
Most enjoyable part was designing the space ship hardware

2nd rate at best
PRINCIPLE FLIGHT CONTROLS ENGINEER (Former Employee) –  Mojave, CAJune 4, 2014
Continued Scaled Composites culture of home-built aircraft. Composite aircraft and mechanical systems are designed by new grads with no knowledge of composite layup or FAR 23 FAR 25 design requirements. I've seen carnival rides with more integrity.
Cons
too many to list here

Working for TSC/ Virgin Galactic is truly amazing! The project that we work on is completely outstanding and we all reach our challenges every day to get our vehicles into space! Everyone who works here is like family, and I can honestly say we are a giant family. Management goes above and beyond to have a great team to send our customers into space. We work hard, and have fun at the same time!
