I have been working at Sandia full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The work is technically challenging, the atmosphere is respective, very unique problems to work on, exceptional people (honest, hardworking, competent, intelligent).

Cons

All employees are treated equally whether they work hard or not. Pay is low for the level of technical work our engineers accomplish.

Advice to Management

Higher the best and brightest then hang on to them by compensating them well. We are treated well and respected by our management but being more frugal on capital equipment and more generous to the employees would help a great deal.
