    I worked at Y-12 National Security Complex full-time (more than 10 years)


    I worked in the IT department and really enjoy dynamic work. Although not cutting edge, there was always opportunities to move to new work areas after a few years.


    A little too much micromanagement for professionals. Making the 4-10 workweek optional would have been better for many workers. Parking can be terrible at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management seemed detached from the workers, more open meetings with groups would be appreciated.

    Negative Outlook
