    I worked at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    People are passionate and very intelligent. 9/80 schedule is great.

    Cons

    Some inflated egos, incompetent people remain here forever because it’s a cushy gig with a respected name, which leads to problems with career growth (there is no where to grow to if no one ever leaves) and with innovation (clashes with the new classes of employees and new ideas aka asks for completely normal modern processes, tools, and etc. ). Pay is not competitive. Treatment of non-engineering staff is very poor. They really do not value non-engineering much at all. This includes science. Very little lateral movement for anyone interested in exploring new areas of lab. Not a diverse workforce. The same bad ideas just reverberate.
