    Pros

    The Jet Propulson Lab really invests in its interns and gives them meaningful projects. Many interns publish their work over the summer. The 9/80 schedule is awesome.

    SInce JPL is part of NASA, a government agency, it mission can change wih each president. The is a lot of bureucracy, as with any other government agency.

    Continue to invest in programs for the top minds in STEM. Get rid of all the little unnecessary steps to complete projects.
