    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 10 Jahren bei NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    - Work/life balance is very good - Unique projects/missions that no other company has done or attempted - Unique blend of engineers and top scientists and PhD's in the world. - Good benefits overall (new employees earn 3 weeks + 1 day vacation and 12 sick days per year) - Great employer contributions to Key Staff retirement plan - Casual environment

    Kontras

    Like most companies the size of JPL (5000+ employees), there are "companies within the company" which means that certain sections or divisions may be vastly different than others. As a result, it is difficult to provide a sweeping, all inclusive company wide con. However, here is my attempt: - JPL is struggling financially right now because although often successful, they have been labeled as too expensive for... many deep space or interplanetary missions. Consequently, they have been forced to compete for other types of contracts and have been failing because of their excessive cost. The days of receiving a blank check from NASA to send a rover to Mars (JPL's specialty that requires no competitive bidding) looks to be over or at least suspended for the next 8 years or so. - JPL has their share of common issues involving companies of this size - ineffective or apathetic group supervisors, too many levels of management on some projects, etc. However, nothing too far out of the ordinary and most of these cases are isolated rather than chronic.

    Rat an das Management

    Anonymous feedback from employees regarding their opinion about line management and/or project management should be solicited and reviewed to identify problematic supervisors or project managers. If 90% of the employees say the same thing about a particular manager or supervisor, then it's probably worth investigating. However, if you do not provide a means for the employee to voice their opinions without... retribution, how will you identify these troublespots in management?

    working on crazy awesome stuff like spacecrafts that could go to other planets or cutting edge robots, people are cool and smart and interesting and enjoy talking about their work, hours are reasonable, the cafeteria is not horrible (not great either)

    Kontras

    public job so there's a lot of hoops to jump though to buy stuff, pay isn't great
