Pros

Great people to work with, Great Job satisfaction, Fair compensation (could be better!!!) , Great location... Livermore, CA. You are working with brilliant people who are dedicated to the research they are doing. This makes work fun, even exciting some times.

Cons

Great place to work, but if I had to come up with one downside, increases in salary have been slow to come.... Compensation package (insurance, etc...) have been getting worse year after year... I guess this has been the trend for companies for several years now, but it's starting to be an issue with me.

Advice to Management

Quit thinking employee retention is a given, this job requires the best minds in the world for you to succeed. In order to retain this caliber of staff you may need to exceed the local pay/benefits packages by some small amount, instead you are currently under the local pay/benefits packages.

    Pros

    Opportunity to do challenging, interdisciplinary work that can impact the nation. Get to work on teams with other smart people (majority of the technical staff have masters, phds, post-docs) from top universities. Collaboration with academia and industry is encouraged. This place offers a great balance between work and personal life. Opportunity to change careers and disciplines within the company.

    Cons

    Too many restrictions on computing technology (i.e. electronic devices, web apps, etc.). Working in a need-to-know environment makes it difficult to share information within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on the mission of the lab and more on the vision of the lab. Up the compensation especially for the California site.


  2. Sandia is a really really great place to work if you don't mind the location.
