Featured Review

Former Employee - Aeronautical Engineer

I worked at NASA full-time for more than a year

Pros

Free food provided Can fly around the world

Cons

Long commute home Can eat only food provided by them

Former Intern - Anonymous Intern

I worked at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory for less than a year

Pros

* The best part about interning here was the sheer number of interesting talks that you could attend. From famous scientists, to space fiction writers, they all gave talks that the interns were... encouraged to go to. * Get to work on the cutting edge of space technology research * Every other Friday is off, allowing for a great work-life balance.

Cons

* Government organization, so the speed of projects and research is limited by the annoying process of applying for and receiving grant money.
