Current Employee - Postdoctoral in Los Alamos, NM

I have been working at Los Alamos National Laboratory

Pros

good salary. their salary for postdocs almost as twice much as academic
nice staff. generally, you will have a very nice adviser.
unlimited funding. money for research is plenty.

Cons

isolated city, in the middle of nowhere
if you are not a us citizen, forget about being converted

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I hope there are less restriction towards foreigners. way too many meaningless regulations. also staff should share the resources better to improve productivity.
