"JPL is an "Insider's Club". If you're not one of the "elite", but think you're lucky to be working there, then you are in for disappointment. First you'll get hired, then you start working, then you have to APPLY for a badge just to go to work (after you've left your old job). They'll demand from you the names and numbers of friends and neighbors, on top of job references. In the end, you can get fired even if you think you're doing your job. If you want to transfer to another job, you can't apply like an "insider" can. You have to use the external website and apply like a "stranger". So much for being a contractor that's familiar with the policies and facilities. I question their ethics too. Some people are treated better than others, but they hide this from the public."
