It's a good place to be from... Better if you're technical...

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Columbus, OH

Pros* still has a pension and 401K (pension doesn't matter much anymore to younger staff)
* on-site gym
* great opportunities for tech staff to work on a variety of impactful projects

Cons* support staff are significantly undervalued
* a chosen few advance by stepping on others and getting rid of them when they get in the way
* much better for technical staff than support
* largely putting all of their eggs in the government basket foretells a crash and burn if/when fiscal cliff happens
* used to be a good place to work - now it's a good place to be from

Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to be cost-competitive w/ other companies - focus on increasing commercial business (or does Battelle really just want to be known for managing labs)

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