Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at General Atomics full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Flexible work hours, challenging work, opportunities for growth

Cons

They can’t seem to hire fast enough for the companies growth.

Current Employee - Systems Engineer

I have been working at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

University-like atmosphere, knowledgeable colleagues, a variety of different projects and positions with a lot of movement for people every few years, excellent pay and benefits (especially for... government-like work)

Cons

Some project phases require long hours (but the reward is worth it!)

Advice to Management

Keep developing people as leaders, and not just engineers, and the workforce will continue to get even stronger.
