    Learning and Development Review

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe work/life balance was fabulous and the people were so motivated and had the desire to serve the country. There are plenty of opportunities for personal and professional growth. You can truly learn so much about the federal government by working at the headquarters in DC.

    ConsThere wasn't any. They say that the government jobs are the best. It certainly is true for DOE. I absolutely loved doing what I did at the DOE.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Variety of in-depth, interesting work

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Washington, DC

    ProsDOE was in the midst of disbursing 1705 loan guarantees during my internship there, and there was plenty of work to go around. Staff is extremely qualified and helpful.

    ConsThere is a definite sense of "government bureaucracy" throughout the organization. People leave promptly at 5pm. I mean, at 5:05, offices can be completely dead. The lack of morale is frustrating.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    One of the top internships available during college

    Intern (Former Employee)
    Upton, NY

    ProsYou get to work with world recognized scientists who mentor you and work with you. The atmosphere is very laid back and the material is fun if you have a genuine interest in it.

    Working times are standard but flexible.

    ConsWorking times being flexible also means that you could be working 40+ hours a week during certain weeks.

    Dept. are small.
