Federal government employees have rated NASA — the country’s space agency — as the top workplace in the United States.

The survey of federal workers, the first of its kind, polled 100,000 staff at 28 major government agencies.

NASA ranked first among women and third among men. It was tops among minorities, younger workers and older workers. In every agency surveyed, supervisors and executives rated their satisfaction higher than did lower-level employees. But at NASA, both groups rated their agency as number one.
