    Walkin' the Walk and Rootin' for the Home Team

    Demil Lead (Former Employee)

    ProsI sacrificed a solid career track that promised excellent financial reward for an opportunity to join Battelle straight out of school with a fresh B.Sc. degree. Best move I could have made. I had outstanding mentors and an exciting and challenging environment. I enjoyed many self-identified opportunies to make substantial contributions, and was well-trained and compensated.

    ConsThere always seems to be some knuckleheads wherever one goes, but I have no knocks on the company. The only con is that I will no longer be working for Battelle. After decades of accomplished performance and contribution, I and 100's of my co-workers (including some highly educated, ethical and qualified scientists and managers) have worked ourselves out of a job by successfully executing our contract(s) on behalf of Battelle. It was a great ride I'll remember fondly. Lots of great people. As generous a severance package as any non-manager could find, and the work experience and opportunities prepared those who did not squander them for a bright future indeed. I'm gonna be needin' me some new shades!

    Just another pay check

    Research Scientist (Current Employee) Charlottesville, VA

    Pros-The pay was OK
    -The hours are flexible and you could come and go as you pleased
    - Some very interesting projects if you were lucky enough to be connected to the right people.

    Cons-Battelle is very middle management heavy, and so overhead costs are high
    -If you are not in Columbus it can be difficult to move up
    -Politics and in fighting make people unwilling to share work or collaborate
    -No real interest in improving employees besides their silly Battelle University.

    Going downhill

    Scientist (Current Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsWork can be interesting, and at least in my situation I have a lot of control over my own projects.

    ConsThey have decreased our sick days.
    They have deleted three holidays.
    They have gutted our pension (probably be gone in another year).
    They have done away with incentive bonuses.
    They have fired many personnel over the last 2 years.
    They have instituted a horrid accounting system (Catalyst)
    Moral has gone from highly positive to negative.
    They have become just another money grubbing company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
