    Pros

    Excellent mission focus. The people are stellar; if you meet a good scientist there they attack their work with real passion and a sense of purpose. It's a great place to start your scientific career, and they are very supportive of advanced education.

    Cons

    It's a bureaucracy. You often hear the phrase "because that's how we've always done it," which is a killer for a flexible organization. There are often budget woes every time Congress fails to pass a budget, with a lot of last-minute stress submitting spreadsheets, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Take a step back and decide what kind of Laboratory you want to be. If you want to look more like Google, then there is serious work to do. If you want to look like a National Laboratory, then you're choosing a different path. Be mindful, and listen to what your scientists want... they are the ones putting their hearts and souls into war-winning R&D!

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Air Force Research Laboratory (San Antonio, FL).

    Interview

    Very low key. I was mostly asked questions on my educational background and where I thought I could fit in to the organization. I actually interviewed over the phone without knowing prior to the call. So as far as that situation came about, the interview was very mild.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were mostly based on educational background. They were very interested in computer/mathematical modeling, organic chemistry, explosives design, and design of experiments.   Answer Question
