    Pros

    great environment and people. love the mission and being different than other launch services.great people that have worked their tails off from the very beginning to make this place as amazing as it is today

    Cons

    you must be committed to spacex. people that aren't in it all the way eventually get pushed out the door. you do have to put in quite a few hours. its a lot better than it was but we still work a lot
