I have been working at Sandia as an intern (more than 5 years)

Pros

Working with Sandia has been one of the best jobs I could have landed starting my college career. I have been lucky enough to work for them for 4.5 years now as an intern and will hopefully be continuing as a grad student. The raises and flexibility have been great.

Cons

Clerical and Technical students are at a very different pay grade not based on experience or credit hour, but on degree. Not really fair.

    I have been working at Sandia full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Don't have to do much if you don't want to, great work-life balance, decent pay

    Cons

    Not rewarded for doing excellent work. Ability to move up is very limited by company policy and not related to a person's performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire bad people and reward the ones who are doing well

    Pros

    Interesting work of national importance

    Cons

    Not what it used to be. Senior management driving it to look more like a commercial outfit, losing it's special character and distinguishing prestige rather quickly

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Labs should not necessarily be modeled on a commercial venture!
