    I have been working at NASA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    World's leading institute in development of remote sensing instruments. The position directly use NASA remote sensing data, rare anywhere else.

    Cons

    NASA is a multi direction institute and the focus is not on a specific problem but very diverse.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NASA.

    Interview

    Application, and then one formal interview. No surprising questions, mostly about my experience, what I want to learn, and how I work in a team. Mostly questions that were about personality.
