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

    Pros

    The work is exciting and fun. You feel like you are working on something really meaningful.

    Cons

    If you don't believe in the 'SpaceX mission', definitely don't work here. There are extremely long hours and it's difficult to maintain a work-life balance, so if you don't enjoy your work, you'll burn out fast.
