Best place I ever worked!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Albuquerque, NM

I have been working at Sandia full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe diversity of people and variety of job assignments. I have never been bored. Previously, I changed jobs every couple of years, but I've found this place interesting/stimulating enough to stay 20! I've been able to be the master of my own career here. The benefits are quite good. I have had a couple of great mentors.

ConsConstraints of working for a government contractor - many regulations and requirements, which can hinder risk-taking and innovation. It's possible to be a change agent - it just takes patience and persistence.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
