I have been working at NASA as an intern (More than a year)

Pros

The work is very self-guided which allows for you to perform tasks which relate to your interests. The work is not too intensive and allows for interns to move at their own pace

Cons

The system is very Bureaucratic, deadlines and mandatory events are very important to attend and can be dry and paperwork can be frustrating. Communication with supervisors can be very slow and sometimes non-existent.

Advice to Management

Communicate better with employes
