    I worked at NASA as an intern (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Really fun people (There are a number of interns over the summer to hang out with)
    - I did a programming internship. It was very creative, and I was allowed to make my own deadlines.
    - A lot of independent work

    Cons

    - Not a lot of help
    - Slightly disorganized
    - Ambiguous work expectations (It depends a lot on who your mentor is)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Office culture is very friendly/ semi-health conscious. Interns really like doing activities on the weekends. For example: skydiving, boating, movies, etc.

Then HR set up a 30 minute phone interview for the following week. After interview, was notified within a few days. Was given less than a week to decide.

NASA was founded in 1958, partly in response to Russia's launch... More
