I have been working at INL

Pros

The pay is very fair, the staff is fairly competent. The location is great since Idaho Falls is a growing community that has the benefits of a larger city (great shopping, reasonable airport, good restaurants, public involvement) but has a small town appeal (good schools, low taxes, not much traffic).

Cons

Internal resources are divided by the "who you know" principle rather than based upon merit or need. The management at the top level is disconnected from the staff. The management at the lower level is fairly stagnant and rarely changes (fortunately they stay out of the way for the most part though).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees.

    I have been working at INL

    Pros

    The technology is great and you can work on some of the most amazing projects in the world with outstanding resources.

    Cons

    The bureaucracy is tough and makes it difficult to get anything done. Feels like you're working for the government without all of the paid holidays or flexible working hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Run it like a business instead of a department in the government.
