Featured Review

Current Contractor - Recruiter

I have been working at Facebook for less than a year

Pros

Facebook is truly an amazing company to work for with a very considerate management, brilliant co-workers and an exceptional culture that is real, not only words on papers! As a contractor we don't... feel apart and not part of the company, we are completely part of the team!

Cons

Don't see any so far...

Advice to Management

Keep going and continue to recognise the crucial role of each of your employees and contractors.

Current Employee - Systems Engineer

I have been working at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Working on one of a kind missions to explore the solar system and beyond with smart, hardworking coworkers. JPL feels like a college campus; you can arrange to have a lot of meetings outside, looking... at the mountains (though not in the heat of the summer). Good work-life balance. The lab can be exceptionally supportive to employees who are having major life issues....generally if you've built up street cred and are known to be productive. On the technical side, a large range of career paths and job types, though some success is the luck of being in the right place at the right time.

Cons

Missions get cancelled, mission proposals get turned down. Workload can be overwhelming at times -- before delivering a proposal, or before major reviews, or leading up to/during critical mission... events (e.g. launch or going into orbit around [fill in name of planet]. Pay is OK but not at tech company levels; newer employees and some older ones have a tough time with housing. Parking is horrid, the cafeteria is meh.
