SSAI's culture is founded
upon our desire
to better the lives
of our employees, their families, and the communities we live in. SSAI’s success as a science and engineering company is built upon a foundation of strong values and collegial corporate culture. We believe in teamwork, responsibility, and a commitment to fostering the well-being of every employee, both personally and professionally. We believe it is every employee’s responsibility to act with openness, integrity, technical excellence, and an attitude of customer service. Our respect for each other moves beyond the confines our office walls, and we take great pride in our corporate citizenship.
Education and lifelong learning are cornerstones of SSAI’s commitment to its employees. Over the years, SSAI has sponsored several dozen employees throughout their B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. education. During the past 10 years, SSAI has allocated from its profit a series of educational scholarships to its employees’ children, provided scholarships to many undergraduate students through professional societies such as AMS, and sponsored numerous students for summer work and training. We offer training programs and access to thousands of online courses for employees to improve their skill sets.
Because our employees work so hard, we make time to unwind, socialize, and serve the community. Each year, we sponsor company golf tournaments, summer picnics, winter galas, and more. Together, we have supported the education and mentoring of students at local elementary schools, hosting school supply drives, providing tutoring, and visiting with students at lunchtime. We have an annual holiday tradition of raising money and collecting new toys to support the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program.
SSAI employees have worked with Habitat for Humanity to repair dozens of homes in our communities. We’ve partnered with the Hampton Clean City Commission in support of the “Adopt-A-Spot” program to minimize litter and keep our roads clean and beautiful. We are a sponsor of American Red Cross blood drives, where multiple employees donate to support the Red Cross’s lifesaving mission to keep up with the needs of local patients and hospitals.
Throughout all that we do, SSAI is committed to acting in a straightforward manner and following the highest standards of professionalism. We promote an environment where diversity is valued and encouraged, and we promote openness in our decision-making process. We fulfill our commitments to customers, employees, partners, and the community, and we treat others as we would like to be treated. Our passion for our work is reflected in our enthusiasm for acting locally to improve life globally.
