Suggestions for improvement
- Congress, OMB and the President need to create budgets that enable an entire Agency to conduct its work (e.g., with proper administrative support).
What I like about the company
NASA enables science, technology, innovation and exploration. It is an agency of brilliant people who seek to do amazing things. I work with people who launch to ISS and I have met astronauts and world class scientists. These are people who dream big and go get their visions.
What I dislike about the company
We are constantly trying to fit our work into budgetary schemes created by OMB and the President that are short-sighted and lacking in strategic thought. I am told to do more with less every single year. We are scaling back on non-technical support and resources to enable the mission, but doing so is stressing out our administrative staff, many whom are leaving because they are unable or unwilling to work nights and weekends when they are not paid to do so and should not have to do so. I will be one of those people.
