    Pros

    Battelle is a large company that heavily recruits from the university pipeline. If you are looking to follow a traditional model for employment and advancement it is a good place to start.

    Cons

    Leadership is limited by a lack of vision. As a collection of business units (small businesses), it is poorly positioned to compete for contracts. The fully burdened costs required to keep the business profitable as a non-profit corporation prevents the company from being successful in market sectors with tight margins. Battelle depends on clients willing to pay premium prices for services based on their name alone. At the end of the day most services are subcontracted anyway.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Marketing Staff and reallocate money spent by marketing personnel directly through the product lines. It is rediculous to expect project staff to maintain 90% plus time worked while being expected to also market their own services.


  2. Great place to work for schedule flexibility ans skill building
