    The research opportunities are great but the infrastructure is in dire need of improvement.

    I have been working at Naval Research Laboratory full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    For a post doctoral fellowship, the pay is pretty high. You have a large degree of autonomy in your research and for a DoD lab, they do a great deal of basic research. The other scientists are usually very helpful and you can make a lot of great connections.

    Cons

    The infrastructure is crumbling. The support staff often takes forever to get things done (cleaning, purchase orders, etc.)

    Interview Details

    I worked here as a National Research Council post-doc first. NRL does most of its hiring from the post-doc pool. At the end of my postdoc, they asked me if I wanted a job. I said yes. It took about 6 months to fill out the paper work, which included them filing a "fake" posting on USAjobs and me "applying" for the position.

    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation. Everything is set by Congress.
