    I have been working at Los Alamos National Laboratory full-time (more than 5 years)


    The laboratory is a great place to work. Balance between personal life and work life is pretty good. There are plenty of opportunities to work on different areas if you have the appropriate skill set, but you need to be at the right time in the right place. Benefits are good.


    Little to no upward mobility in this area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of paperwork sometimes unnecessary. Need to listen and engage staff to streamline work.

    Positive Outlook
