Great if you can compromise. Lots of politics!

Engineer II (Former Employee)
Pasadena, CA

I worked at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory

ProsA class of their own. Best of the best among employees, processes, and organization. A great manufacturing system as far as automation, software and hardware. NASA typically chooses the best, so you get to work with a diverse group from top ranked graduates and employees.

ConsAs expected, politics galore! Everyone is out to compete and move up the corporate ladder. Lots of egos. A problem is hardly solved quickly, you would have to go thru a long chain of commands before it gets looked at. If you don't go thru specific people, watch out! The process is pretty efficient. It can get boring.

Advice to Senior ManagementWork together more. Listen to new ideas and suggestions.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
