"I am an Electrical Engineer who actually dreamed of working for JPL, so I took this contract job there. It must be like wishing you could work for Disney, only to discover the "soul-crushing" that goes on there. I love my job, but JPL scientists are crappy managers and engineers. They are not good with "people"."
