    I have been working at SpaceX full-time

    Pros

    Incredible talent and significant work. The SpaceX brand is a powerful one (#1 in the world on Hired’s Global Brand Health report), and the stuff you get to see here will blow your mind. Every day. People here are friendly, super smart, and dedicated to SpaceX’s mission of enabling space exploration and human life on Mars. Food here is delicious and employees get great discounts

    Cons

    no 401k matching but that’s really it, on the whole this work environment is unlike any other so there are few cons

    Advice to Management

    employee benefits are getting better but could still use additional work (e.g. free food, 401k matching, etc)

    I have been working at SpaceX full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A lot of responsibility early on Everyone is driven by the success of the mission Launches culminate all of the work dedicated to each mission Stock is nice but hard to sell especially once you leave Subsidized lunches Very smart people

    Cons

    Underpaid - They use the goal of the overall mission as a reason not to give fair wages Overworked - Constantly increases an employees scope of work without additional compensation Unappreciated - Rarely rewarded for going above and beyond the cause. Stifled Development - No clear path or help getting to the next level. Leveling of people at current level to next level Management - Not proactive at looking at workload...

    Advice to Management

    Care about the well-being of your employees. Ask them how they are doing and what they need help with. HIRE MORE PEOPLE. Think about the long-term consequences of lay-offs and understaffing. Be more proactive in planning of requirements for missions and setting realistic objectives with launches.
