    Pros

    As an intern here at SpaceX, I was given the opportunity to "showcase" my engineering adroit through projects. I was either working independently on a project or leading a team of contractors on a different project. I got the chance to really take charge of my career and my future.

    Cons

    There are none observed at this time.

    I have been working at SpaceX as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As an interning experience, SpaceX has gone out of its way to make sure that I am always interested in what I'm doing and learning. I appreciate that they see me as an investment. The company has great spirit, everyone working here is here because they love it. I've had the opportunity to work on a full stack, my supervisor is more than happy to sit down and answer questions/teach me, and I have learned a lot not just about coding, but about manufacturing and rockets. They've also been incredibly supportive of my goals outside of work (competitive fencer, requires time to go to competitions) which was a high priority for me where I worked.

    Cons

    Intern housing is a little meh even though the location is great, but they should be changing that in the near future... Also a fairly male dominant workplace, though as far as the industry goes it's definitely the most progressive place I've been.

    Advice to Management

    Management has done a fantastic job at being present in our internship, arranging additional presentations for us to learn other parts of the business, and has been very clear as to expectations. Keep up doing what you're doing?
