I worked at Battelle Memorial full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

-Employee support services
-Large Reach back to Columbus
-Above average compensation packages (not salary)

Cons

Battelle is shifting away from consulting services and focusing on its research. There are currently limited oppotunities in the Washington Area to have any career growth within Battelle.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage your middle managers to focus on employee opportunities and growth instead of cometeing with one another for dollars.

    I worked at Battelle Memorial full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Nice people that do the actual work. Great facilities. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Seems as if they restructure every year without giving time for the last restructure to be effective. Many RIF's. Middle management seem not to care about their workers. I found them to be immature and arrogant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop restructuring every year.

    I have been working at Battelle Memorial full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    High quality people.
    Solve hard problems.
    Good charitable mission.

    Cons

    What matters most is the bottomline.
    Little tolerance for non-billable work.
    No clear path for advancement outside of Columbus.
    Quick to layoff un-billable staff.
    Admin organizations in the company operate independently of those they serve.
    Inefficient matrix management. Some of those who own the work do not work well with resource managers. They don't communicate and they lead their projects using fear and threats of losing work to "keep people in check."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop cutting into the bone. We're working our people to death.
    Not everything has to fit into a box or in the cell of a spreadsheet.
