Current Employee - Postdoctoral Appointee in Albuquerque, NM

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

Pros

If you're here for research, there's a great community of knowledgeable people to learn from. The pay is good, and the job security is good if you can make the conversion to staff.

Cons

Management often interferes more than they help. The work-life balance was not so great, and there's always the scrabble to find enough funding to stay employed, particularly during the currently tight times.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Vet your lower managers better.

    Cons

    The mission support organizations are bureaucratic and not focused on supporting the mission
    Some trending towards compliance without regard to effectiveness
