Featured Review

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.

Former Employee - Intern

I worked at NASA Glenn Research Center full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great people. No ladder of any kind here - everyone is there because they're passionate about space and technology.

Cons

It gets real cold in Cleveland.
