Pros

There are lots of fun and smart people to work with. Lots to learn, and good compensation. It's a great for students who are in school or just out of school.

Cons

Current economic situation has greatly decreased budgets causing many people to leave.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't support your students and then let them go upon graduating.

    I worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory as an intern (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and job security and good if you are a scientist. There are lots of different types of work if you qualify for them, so you can move around if you get bored.

    Cons

    Los Alamos is a boring town with very little to do and has created a very strange corporate culture. The lab is large, unwieldy, and generally mismanaged. Not good for non-scientists.

    I have been working at Los Alamos National Laboratory full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The lab has excellent benefits and provides a good work/life balance, but their salaries are hardly competitive--particularly if you are a student being converted into a full-time staff member.

    Cons

    Slow-moving, very behind the curve, extremely political. There is too much focus on hyper-specialization and not enough on being a generalist when it comes to support staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care more about talent.
