“Fun work environment but low pay as a contractor”
I have been working at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center full-time for more than a year
– Fun work environment – Meaningful projects
– “flex time” is most times thrown away by the end of pay period – Contractors treated as if they were lower class
I worked at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center full-time for more than 5 years
-Job security -Friendly work environment -no dress code or standards -some projects allow innovation and are great to work on -some good people fight the bureaucracy and actually get stuff done -Best place to work if you’re lazy and and want to collect a dependable paycheck
“Not a good place to work”
I have been working at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center full-time
None, there is not a good place to work
Everyone is a manager there
“Great place to work”
I have been working at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center full-time for more than 10 years

Government bureaucracy is sometimes hard to navigate through..

I loved my job and did it well
If you have a supervisor who doesn’t like you, NASA Goddard will enable it. They feel that they have no right to stop criminal behavior as long as it does not involve a government employee, I suffered 17 years of flagrant abuse and Goddard knew about it the whole time and did nothing to stop it.
“It All Depends”
I have been working at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center full-time for more than 5 years
flexibility, great work life balance, relaxed work environment
hard to move around to different projects, eventually will feel stuck somewhere you do not want to be, you have to seek out promotions yourself even though you are entitled to one after a year but management will not tell you, hard for black employees to gain credit they deserve
“Full cost accounting + large retirement age staff = nope”
I worked at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center full-time for more than a year
The pay is okay for the area given that it’s a GS job.
> 60% of the civil servant employee base are retirement eligible. Full cost accounting means that the early career scientists have to hustle writing grant proposals for their paychecks while the scientist who have been around for awhile just get charge codes for nebulous “work”.

-There were plenty of opportunities for enrichment outside of your internship (talks, tours, everyone was really excited to talk to interns for informational interviews). -Tons of other interns -Pretty unbeatable on a resumé.
-My internship supervisor was way too busy for me and I had trouble getting a hold of him. -I was bored extremely often because my supervisor was so MIA. I don’t think that many other interns had this issue however.
