    I worked at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory

    Pros

    Lot of creative latitude. You are constantly working on cutting edge technology and learning something new everyday. It was very exciting to be a part of.

    Cons

    Top heavy management and cumbersome protocols.There was a lot of unnecessary redundancy in the day to day protocols. In some ways they were stuck in systematic rut.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management would be open up to more outside ideas. Fire the people that sit and waste tax payer dollars and stream line the programs.
