I have been working at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Knowing that the work you do advances the state of humanity; living in Southern California, minutes from everything; keeping a sharp mind; working with some of the best technology on the planet; really sharp co-workers

Cons

Southern California cost of living requires some sacrifices and careful planning; Government regulation injects an occasional air of the surreal, but JPL is really no different than any entity in the US in that way

Advice to Management

Keep learning from the most successful companies in our sector; pave the way for innovation, clear the roadblocks; keep you focus on enabling the absolute best work

    when customer tries to add items after contracts are signed, the answer is not yes. The answer is we would be glad to study the changes with a study contract and fold them into the existing contract if applicable.
