Great place

Postdoctoral Research Associate (Former Employee)
Gaithersburg, MD

ProsLots of equipment and funding for research. Very smart and enthusiastic people all around you. The campus and location are beautiful.

ConsAs with most government organization, there is a lot of bureaucracy. You have to do a lot of paperwork to get your purchasing orders placed, papers published, etc.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry to streamline things a little so it is easier to get things done. Simplify the procedures for placing orders, publishing papers, going on travel, etc.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
