I worked at Space Exploration Technologies as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

As someone who grew up without the obsession with space, I can say that this company got me excited about space exploration.
-The company, though it has grown, still feels like a startup company.
-Many perks for employees (frozen yogurt, soft drinks, coffee, massage chairs(!), etc.)
-Work with many smart people; always helpful in answering questions and offering suggestions.
-Given my own project with responsibilities and deadlines
-Learned so much more than was possible in class
-Somewhat flexible working hours

Cons

-LONG working hours + weekends fairly often
-Compensation is decent, but can be difficult with the cost of living in CA

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the startup atmosphere and get to Mars!

    I have been working at Space Exploration Technologies full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexibility, freedom, hands on environment. You can grow as much as you want as fast as you want. It's a very free flowing environment, people don't breath down your neck, they just expect you to get your work done. You have a lot of responsibility and a lot of exposure.

    Cons

    Long hours, very little rest. Often work weekends to keep the pace!
