      Stay Away from this company for your own sanity

      Pros

      There WERE quite a few wonderful people working at this company. They were your peers and definitely NOT the management.

      Cons

      Almost everything about this company is a CON. The owner is a VERY big con, the management is a big con, the vision of this company is a con, the pay is a con, the entire benefit structure is a con. The only good thing is they pay you and if the company was allowed they wouldn't pay you.

      The most horrific company I've ever had the misfortune of working for.

      Pros

      Absolutely none. I'm glad this man decided to shut down his joke of an aerospace company. COVID was the perfect excuse even though we all knew it was going to be shut down by last November. Some people do weird and pointless things with their wealth. This man made a killing off the crack den extended stay Budget Suites. He did this by leveraging his first crack den and repeating. He wasted a large chunk of money on this aerospace project. Time to sell off the rest of your roach motels and retire in Montana.

      Cons

      Read all the other reviews because they are 100% true (except for the fake positive reviews.)

      Pros

      Great people who are passionate about aerospace and innovation

      Cons

      So many levels of redundant management that implementing new ideas was next to impossible. Company has since closed.

      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.

      Worst place I Ever Worked At

      Pros

      If you love fake stuff, models, and great useless visuals this is the place for you! Coworkers are great, that is the only real value you get from this place.

      Cons

      A horrible place. Absolutely complete disconnect from upper management, no communication, no company goals, NASA constantly flip flopping on mission direction on a weak budget, also Bigelow Aerospace puts absolutely no value in their employees. If you like the vacuum of space, this is the place to work, you are literally working in a vacuum of company goals, general office technology (no laptops, no phones, no email, no internet access, old software, poor IT system, and not much of a budget to get any real projects completed). Upper management gives no respect for the experience in education and industry knowledge that you bring to this place.
