    Pros

    Despite what you may have heard, this company is very ethical, transparent, and really wants to do the right thing. Four-day work week is great! They really want you to have work life balance. They walk the talk.

    Cons

    If you come from outside the industry, you will feel like you don't fit there. Not as open to new ideas as I would like because "that's the way we've always done it."

    Advice to Management

    Be open to new ideas. Keep an open mind.

    Pros

    Compensation was good. 4-day work week was nice. My manager was great (but many at this location are not).

    Cons

    The company treats salaried employees like hourly ones - don't expect to flex your time at all. The position you're hired into may be your last - in 2014 the HR department was beginning to realize that employees feel trapped in their positions and this may improve in the future, but my experience was that you were only seen as skilled in your current position and there was no support for learning something new or making career advancements.

    Advice to Management

    Cross-train employees to maintain skilled employees.

    Pros

    The job is reasonably stable.

    Cons

    If the government shuts down, you better have PTB (Vacation Bank) to weather the upsets. If you haven't been there 20 years, you are outside of the fence and treated like a new hire...no outside experience considered for vacation accrual. Since it is a government contract, you aren't paid for how well you do or what you do...you are paid what the contract says that your hiring title, experience, and degree says you are worth. There is no negotiating with exempts.

    Advice to Management

    CHPRC, run Hanford like a business. there are such things as succession planning, management training, and similar corporate programs to build your employees up to be more than a government drone. focus on these things. Get the government to loosen up onbenefits for exempts. Your benefits don't match market for college educated staff, and they have steadily declined over the past 15 years, while giving your Union Workers consistant if not better benefits over that time. In 1995, you wanted employees to have 2 wks vacation, a week for sick leave, and holidays on top of that. People with a 20 min commute to their site got an extra day because of givens like Dentist visits. Since then, you have leaned out vacation to below industry standard. 4-10s means a commute and total day away from home of 12hrs 30 min, for 10 hr pay. Quality of life on those 4 days is hampered until the 3 day weekend, as life after work is difficult to maintain in the 3 waking hours you have to eat, groom, do chores, and wind down.

    Pros

    Lots of clean-up work. Finally, this contract has all Hanford contractors working together as teams which allows the work to be completed easier. Management is supportive of employees to be successful and encourages employees to widen their horizons.

    Cons

    Funding reductions by Congress regarding Dept. of Energy budget effect the work scope that is done. Reduction in funding means reduction in jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communications, be positive, and acknowledge all your employees that work hard in the background to make the Management shine!

    Pros

    If you like 60 minute commute each way, long hours with forced overtime, and being lied to and talked down to you should love this place.

    Cons

    Greedy, selfish, arrogant, pushy, liars, dangerous, will stop at nothing to belittle their employees. They will want to cut your pay so they can put more money into their pockets. Their benefits are less than adequate yet they tout how wonderful they are. They give thousands in bonuses to upper management and want to cut workmanship and safety.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as you would want to be treated.
