We also ensure that you receive a first-rate, competitive benefits package, including the following:


Medical, Dental, and Vision Coverage

Other benefits include short-term and long-term disability leave, life insurance, and an office ergonomic support program to ensure a safe and effective workplace.


Time Off

To help employees balance their professional and personal lives, Aerospace offers not only paid vacation and holidays but also generous sick leave. In addition to other leave programs, we also offer Parental Leave for employees who are expecting a new child through birth, adoption, or foster placement.



Aerospace offers a 401(k) plan with a total company-paid benefit of 8, 10, or 12 percent, based on years of service. You will be immediately eligible and vested.

Additionally, Aerospace also offers a retiree medical plan, as well as financial planning tools and one-on-one investment counseling.


Health and Wellness

An Employee Assistance Program as well as a pre- and post-natal support program for both mothers and fathers are available at no cost to you. A free 24-hour nurse line is also available, allowing employees to access useful, easy-to-understand information—24/7—to help you make sound healthcare decisions.

Additionally, Aerospace offers on-campus wellness events and activities, including a walking club, weekly organic vegetable delivery, Weight Watchers, yoga (El Segundo location), and fitness facilities (El Segundo and Chantilly locations).



Most of Aerospace’s full-time employees have the option of working a 9/80 schedule, with alternating Fridays off.


On-Campus Dining

There are onsite dining options in both Chantilly (Virginia) and El Segundo (California), as well as common areas to meet with coworkers to enjoy coffee, snacks, or lunch.


Social Clubs

A selection of social clubs—from dragon boat racing to book clubs—is available to all employees who wish to participate, allowing coworkers to get to know each other outside the office. If one does not fit your particular interest, you are welcome to start a new one!


Commuter Services and Rideshare Programs

Convenient cycling, vanpool, and rideshare programs are available.
