    Pros

    Sandia has great talent among the scientific and business staff. These are people who are thought leaders, creators, inventors and innovators. Unfortunately, great talent gets tapped to be management, which is not really a promotion.

    Cons

    Management seems to operate in a vacuum, with the most pervasive attitude based on CYA. Afraid to take ownership and a leadership role, the vast majority of mid-level management is just towing the corporate line and promoting what their superiors tell them to do, acting out the very definition of government bureaucracy. Ineffective, unoriginal and very demoralizing to the technical and business staff.

    Advice to Management

    Start taking on some accountability and risk. Innovation is non-existent because managing doesn't want to be perceived as original content thinkers or outside-the-box creators. And stop promoting high performing staff into managemt roles with little or no training. Great technical staff rarely make great leaders and managers without experience or training.
