Fun place to work
This is a fun place to work especially if you are into science and astronomy. I was here on a project that lasted a year and a half and learned what real project management is by some of the finest people I ever met. Great team environment!

Intern Role spent spearheading technological processes to fabricate spacesuits suitable for Mars.
I thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity. I gained an abundance of hands on experience working in the different NASA labs, as well as technical knowledge from leading engineers allowing me to explore possible solutions on my own.

Great Agency
NASA was great to work at but was stressful at time. Tasks were very sensitive at times. Hours were great, and the staff was amazing to work with. Buildings were in need of remodeling but overall it was a great place to work.
Pros
Great Pay
Cons
Contracting positions are not permanent

Productive and Friendly Enviroment
My position was an e-internship. I worked remotely and never had to go into any office. I fulfilled this internship while I was enrolled in College, obtaining my Associates Degree. The staff was helpful and always available. I am honored to have had the opportunity.

It was a fun environment to work in and it offered a lot in the way of new technology. Unfortunately, politics played a major role in the personnel decisions for the base that caused several furloughs and contract renegotiations as political tides changed.

The best place to work in the Federal Government
Evidently everyone is very professional. Sometimes you set your own goals. They encourage continuing education. The worst part about NASA is the change in contracting companies. It creates stress and apprehension as you wait to hear if your current contract has been renewed.
Pros
Professional atmosphere
Cons
Contract changes

Relaxed place
If you are looking for a relaxed place, this is the place. There is not a lot of room for growth in the organization. Managers are friendly. The office setting is small.

Working on this account there was a lot of stress. Hewlett Packard Enterprise started their Workforce Reduction plan and unfortunately I was one of those employees that was laid off in October 2016.

Team players that are mission driven in space exploration
The days could be long if deliverables had to be submitted within certain time parameters. I learned about international project management, strategic planning and NASA's Diversity and Inclusion Strategic Implementation Plan.

NASA co-workers were the best and brightest and did not mind sharing their knowledge with others.


The hardest part of the job was not always having the human resources to do a task due to budget restrictions and limited funding.


The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with senior managers who appreciated the effort and acknowledged it to me.
Pros
The learning environment was excellent with state of the art IT
Cons
As a contractor, I did not have the same options as gov't employees

A wonderful place to work with great opportunities to travel
NASA seems like a fantastic place to work for official NASA employees. As a government contractor it is an honor to support such awesome work. My position affords me a number of great opportunities to travel and work with some really incredible dynamic people.
Pros
Good benefits package, flexible hours, culturally diverse work culture, and lots of work
Cons
Poor enhanced skill development and advancement opportunities for contractors.
