    Pros

    SpaceX is a respectable, eye-catching name brand and for good reason. The product they are producing is unprecedented and they are miles above their competition. While you’re there you will develop the skills you need to succeed in the aerospace industry and build an attractive resume.

    Cons

    I really don’t know where to start. I had no idea what to expect but little did I know that this job would have destroyed my social life and emotional health. I’m still seeing a therapist as a result. The SpaceX standard is that overtime is mandatory not optional. You will be forced to work 10-12 hours per day, five days a week, clocking you in at 50-60 hours a week. Not only that, but management will attempt to guilt you into working a sixth day in a row on Saturdays. I was completely burnt out and couldn’t even muster the energy to do anything in my free time. With absolutely zero work/life balance I wasn’t able to see or spend time with my loved ones. The pay is embarrassingly bad and nowhere near being competitive. Thus why SpaceX employees leave to competitors for exceptional pay. They dangle a “raise” in your face for six months just to give you 19 cents. Management is atrocious. They don’t listen, but if you play the right politics, you might move up to where you want to be. I couldn’t condemn this place anymore. Stay away at all costs.
