    Former Intern - Summer in Mountain View, CA

    I worked at NASA Ames Research Center as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Mentors are provided and they give good advice. A great place to work up the ladder, so to speak. As well the environment is wonderful, in terms of people and location. Also a great company to network at.

    Cons

    It is rather difficult to get inside if you are not a United States Citizen. It is possible though. Depending on the department, your ability to handle bureaucracy will be a great asset.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be on the lookout on what people want to do. Passion drives a lot more than anything else.
