"They pay is excellent. I have no complaints there. Money isn't my reward; success at what I do is. An excellent salary helps keep me going though. However, being back-stabbed, not being told I wasn't doing well, not being given a chance to prove my competence; I don't think any dollar amount is worth it. I don't want to work for JPL ever again as a contractor, with no rights."
