Featured Review

Current Employee - Buyer

I have been working at SpaceX full-time

Pros

really cool projects about space

Cons

very competitive and sometime taxing

Former Intern - Electrical Engineer Intern

I worked at Orbital ATK

Pros

Hands-on experience, Great location in Dulles, VA, Offers 9/80 flex Friday schedule. Great work environment with a lot of diversity.

Cons

Not often enough work for interns to do. There is a good amount of downtime. Intern events and lunches are non-chargeable events which discourages attendance.
