    I worked at SpaceX full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    SpaceX is a great place to learn a lot very fast, the work will be challenging but there are a lot of resources to help you solve problems. The teams are very talented and individuals are intelligent, which makes for an inspiring atmosphere pushing you to do good work.

    Cons

    The engineering team isn't diverse, if you were on a Formula SAE team be ready for that same kind of atmosphere. People can be very competitive and at times it felt like coworkers were more likely to try and keep people below themselves than help them out, even if that was worse for the company as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    Promote a strong team culture where people are encouraged to work together to improve the quality of over all work over the quality of their own work.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, barista and FroYo. Employees that work hard and proud of their work.

    Cons

    A CEO with way too many lofty ideas and depends on others to figure it out. Projects ramp fast and burn out quickly. Poor to no planning leads to confusion and disgruntled workers.
