Obviously it depends on job, YOE, and a range of other factors, but generally speaking, how good does NASA look on the resume for a software engineer? What company would be considered a step up and what company a step down?

    I would expect a NASA engineer to be smart but have bad design/software skills when compared to top tier companies. But I'd ultimately let the interview decide. Recruiters may have a different opinion.

    Low. It’s a government agency dealing with enterprise vendor solutions.

    It is always team dependent. The company really doesn't matter so much.

    Is NASA mostly embedded and HPC type stuff?
