    Started off great, gradually got worse due to budget cuts that led to backstabbing.

    I worked at Sandia full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Had great benefits when I started in 1985. Most were whittled away over the course of my 22 years there.
    Had lots of flexibility with the freedom and resources to do good work when I first started. This became more limited and constrained over the years due to budget cuts.

    Cons

    Constant budget cuts caused employees to compete with one another over the same funding dollars.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have ideals of honesty and integrity; try living up to them.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
