    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Research Associate in Knoxville, TN

    Pros

    Good opportunity to work on cutting edge research with experts in the field. Great work atmosphere at ORNL, with flexible hours and excellent pay/benefits.

    Cons

    Temporary position. Good stepping stone to move on to a position elsewhere after leaving, but projects in groups that work closely with industry can lead to fewer publications than one might hope for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For ORNL leadership: you're losing a lot of good talent you could be converting to staff due to bureaucracy, etc.
