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 Management

Keep the startup atmosphere and get to Mars!

    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!
