An excellent place to do advanced industrial research.

Development Engineer (Former Employee)
Malibu, CA

I worked at HRL full-time for more than a year

ProsLocation - Malibu is an amazing place to work.
Colleagues - a very well educated and professional staff
Projects - the research performed here is on the cutting edge
Small company - easy to find people when you need to get things done

ConsCan be difficult at the entry-level, as average experience level of staff is very high
Small company means fewer 'extras' and a less diverse crowd of coworkers

Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage interaction, especially among younger/newer hires, across lab and project lines. This will make it easier for them to collaborate later in their career when they find themselves on the same projects or requiring one another's help.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
