    Really great place for a student internship

    NASA OSSI Intern (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsLarge community of different disciplines working together, eager to teach, willing to give tours on work going on at different sites, ability to switch areas of work. There were many opportunities to meet with other students and to work together on projects in the NASA social environment.

    ConsGovernment unclear in its future goals, lack of vision due to budget concerns, bureaucracy, some systems are using legacy technology. Hard environment to join as, at that time, there was a hiring freeze and there was no way to work at the facility unless as a contractor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDemand a better outlook for ten, twenty years down the line.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work in the middle of nowhere!

    Budget Analyst (Current Employee)
    Las Cruces, NM

    ProsThe management! They are very easy to work with. The are truly caring and allow for time off if and when you need it. They also don't micromanage their employees

    ConsThe drive. The location is out in the middle of nowhere and you have to pass two security check points. The drive in the morning isn't too bad, not much traffic but there definitely isn't anyplace to live that's truly close to the facility. And you really can't go off site to eat lunch since everything is to far away to get back in a timely manner. The cafeteria is very old school and dated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing the exact same thing. Workload tag ups are nice and the meeting structures are great. i love that we get to telecon in with the larger centers as well

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
