Featured Review

Former Employee - Electro-mechanical Technician

I worked at SpaceX full-time for more than a year

Pros

Everything there I love it.

Cons

No comments. All is well

Advice to Management

No comments.

Current Employee - Software Engineer-II

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

Pros

I get to work on awesome problems with smart people. I feel like software developers are under good management that encourage engineer-ownership of products as well as a good work-life balance.

Cons

Top-tier developers will be able to find greater salary at Google, Amazon, Facebook, Apple, or Microsoft.
