What do you like about working at Jet Propulsion Laboratory?

"Working in a unique domain (space exploration), talented group of software developers"

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"It's fun for a while but be prepared to move on when it gets old."

What don't you like about working at Jet Propulsion Laboratory?

"Too mired in legacy ways of thinking and doing work, never time to do it right but always time to do it over. Too much internal competition--duplication of effort and wasted time--multiple stove-piped internal organizations working against one another not competing for the same work but worse actually *doing* the same work."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"move away from the failing, legacy hierarchical management system to a better, more modern organizational leadership model where software development using Scrum and design methodologies are encouraged and can flourish."
