The highest paying skill to have in this role seems to be Project Management; employees claiming this as part of the toolbox earn a median of $137K. It's pretty common to find people here who know Systems Engineering; just under one in three consider it a key competency. Three more common skills are Matlab, C++, and Engineering Design.
Although the firm compensates just over a half of workers for sick days, it only pays half of workers for vacation time. The vast majority of workers receive health insurance, and almost all workers get dental coverage. Jet Propulsion Laboratory folks also make good use of a casual working environment, a subsidized cell phone, life insurance, and tuition reimbursement.
