Featured Review

Current Employee - Cybersecurity Analyst

I have been working at SpaceX full-time for less than a year

Pros

- Work with some of the best and brightest in industry; analyze advanced / targeted threats - Great learning opportunities, and freedom to create and own new projects - Given large amount of... responsibility early on - Generally good work-life balance, depending on team. Each person chooses to work longer if they want to, and projects may be so engaging that one dedicates more time automatically

Cons

- Under-staffed, difficult to hire new people due to high standards of interview process and existing time constraints. This causes excessive burden on staff, and make it more challenging to automate... tasks or work on new projects

Advice to Management

- Prioritize hiring more staff, especially if team is approved for (and wants/needs) more employees

Current Employee - Dimensional Inspector

I have been working at Blue Origin full-time

Pros

Good pay Good benefits Good culture

Cons

None that I can think of
