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 Management

    Fire bad people and reward the ones who are doing well

    I have been working at Sandia full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Constraints 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.
