    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at SpaceX full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    SpaceX has a bunch of motivated, smart people doing exciting work. It's a great place to work for those who enjoy challenges. It's a place where you can be part of a growing business with financial rewards and still work towards amazing, historic goals.

    Cons

    The pace of work is challenging, and while the hours are not necessarily worse than a lot of other companies, this is not a 9 to 5 job. The company is starting to have some "big company" hassles in some areas.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to encourage the problem-solving attitude that helped SpaceX succeed as a startup, while growing the company and improving processes.
