    Cons

    If you don't like hard work or working hard, this place will chew you up and spit you out. So will living in Los Angeles if you aren't used to living in a major city. If you are looking for a nice koosh job where you can figure out the game in the first 6-12 months and then kick back and coast... You are in for a rude awakening and a short lived experience here at SpaceX. Living in LA is extremely expensive and...

    Advice to Management

    Better incentivize excellence. Time lost, should equate to money earned or time given back. Figure out how to better retain our top talent, and make it easier and faster to get rid of the worst.

    I have been working at SpaceX for less than a year

    Pros

    Gives interns real responsibility and treats them like employees. I learned how to be a software engineer this summer, and my code does things that genuinely matter. Passionate, excited people make coming into work every day downright inspiring.

    Cons
