This place is too laid back, and frankly it is boring.
Mechanical Designer (Current Employee) –  Tucson, AZJanuary 8, 2019
AURA is a non-profit, largely funded by U.S. taxpayer money. I am sorry to say that it typifies the stereotype of government inefficiency. The waste is monumental, and the telescope was supposed to be completed in 2012!
Pros
The benefits are amazing, typical of government jobs

Working above the clouds
Electrical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Pukalani, HIFebruary 21, 2018
The scenic view on mount Haleakala in Maui is spectacular. The construction team ascends to an elevation of 10,000 feet where the sunrise is seen above the clouds. Safety first and respect of person are workplace culture that is championed by management. The hardest part of the job is being separate from the wife and children. The most enjoyable is being part of a team that is building an instrument that helps astronomers get a better understanding of our sun.
