Advantages

The contraptions Aerospace Engineers build change the world for the better and can teach us a lot about Earth & beyond. You can also (if your lucky) work with NASA... That's pretty cool...

Disadvantages

If you're the guy who designs missiles... you will be responsible for lots of deaths.
