    I worked at United States Department of Energy as an intern for less than a year


    Office culture was laid back
    People cared about you
    Employees went out of their way to meet you and make you feel at ease
    Workers enjoyed what they did and you could tell


    Got monotonous sometimes
    Felt that I could have been utilized better
    Some people really slacked off while others worked non stop

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. Make sure no one becomes alienated

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
