Pros

They have a place for everyone; volunteering and real jobs. Supportive colleagues and interesting work.

Cons

Very few jobs for people with a bachelor's degree; don't advertise jobs well.

Advice to Management

If possible, be more accessible for college students and those who have recently graduated.

    Pros

    Great networking opportunity. You get to work with world renowned scientists. Interesting lectures, seminars, and conferences.

    Cons

    Dry, stressful, unfriendly environment. Senior scientists lack interpersonal and communicacion skills to *manage* others. FTEs work mostly from home, so it's contractors' responsibility to get things done. Whether you become an FTE depends exclusively on politics, not on your hard-work and accomplishments. Management will not stand up for those who are expendable, even in situations where a supervisor clearly cross the line.

    Advice to Management

    Having incompetent and abrasive scientists as supervisors results in decreased productivity and discourages young, talented professionals from pursuing a career at the CDC. Hiring practices need to be revised to keep those who do the work and fire those who don't even show up to work.
