Negative Outlook

I worked at Space Telescope Science Institute as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Nice office, warm atmosphere, great location and amazing cafeteria. The working hours are flexible and employees are encouraged to work from home once a week.

Cons

Main con is the fact that things move slowly in the office. For security and bureaucracy reasons, the projects take longer than they should. Communication between teams to reach agreement brings even more overhead to the projects.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Space Telescope Science Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exciting projects, interesting people and academic atmosphere. Many opportunities to learn through provided trainings or through available lectures. Ability to have very flexible schedule, allowing one to work from home.

    Cons

    It is a government organization, so promotions are slow, no money is allocated to team building exercises, some technology in use are quite old, mostly because that is what people used to.
