    I have been working at Sandia full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You get to work with a lot of interesting, intelligent people if working on the technical side (the business side is a bit more banal and uninspiring). For Albuquerque, the pay is good and you apparently can get every member of your extended family a position in the company - if you find that an acceptable practice that doesn't violate and principles. Frankly, if you are stuck in Albuquerque, there aren't too many business that offer better pay or benefits.

    Cons

    Numerous. The rating system in no way reflects merit - it is representative of distant, uninterested management that relies on the concept of "visibility" (i.e. the mere act of occupying space in close proximity to management to ensure they recognize your existence) to determine year end ratings. If you are new to Sandia, expect to receive the lowest rating possible as it is considered part of the culture and part of working at for the organization. Nepotism and cronyism are ubiquitous and encouraged. I don't think I have ever worked in an organization where so many people are related. Meetings are more reminiscent of family reunions than work-related gatherings. Tax-payer dollars are wasted with overt disregard through inefficiencies and poor planning - if such things are frustrating and complicate your moral underpinnings, not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop complaining about the culture and do something to change it

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
