Stressful for communications professionals.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsInteresting advanced technologies and science are being deployed for clean and renewable energy. Working with the public is important for DOE's future.

ConsHuge revolving door, inter-departmental divisiveness and a working environment that picks favorites. Consultants tend to be mis-treated, and dis-empowered. That's wrong. The "ivory tower" of national labs led by career Feds is highly insular. DOE tends to be always on the defensive. It needs to be pro-active in communications, internally and externally with the public. It's a huge, monolithic and bureaucratic research institution.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate more transparency and public awareness and jobs in clean energy, and treat consultants equal to feds -- we're all in this together to help America grow into a better place.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
