I worked at Argonne National Laboratory full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Good opportunities, good support, high expectations. You will find unique opportunities that don't exist anywhere else and an incredible group of extremely talented, dedicated employees.

Cons

A touch of the "good old boys" network still exists in certain corners. Otherwise you just need to understand typical government processes.

Advice to Management

A few leaders (very few) need to have more scrutiny and review to encourage quality, productive employees. A better process for evaluation of more senior leadership needs to be implemented.

    They offer good benefits like retirement matching and a lot of vacation time. There is good work/life balance and an emphasis on wellness for employees.

    The pay is probably not as high as commercial labs. The culture also seems a bit sluggish at times and there is less willingness to accept new, more efficient practices.
