The lack of planning by management and proper distribution of workload between employees is not worth the high salary.

Pros

Pay is high due to supporting work in the Nuclear Field. Overtime is always paid (straight time).

Cons

Lack of management at the Fermi II site allows the workload to snowball. Employees are not used up to their maximum potential. Young engineers are used to perform administrative tasks and to push paper instead of being properly trained on the technical aspects they need to succeed. There is no room for advancement in the company. If you are sent to the Fermi II site, you will be forced to stay at this location.

Advice to Management

Plan the workload/projects appropriately to avoid everything becoming a crisis.

    Pros

    Excellence and professionalism are expected. You can make friends and should.

    Cons

    Your manager will not have/make time for you. HIGH turnover.

    Advice to Management

    I agree a junior employee's job is to sell time. However, if you want your team to regard you as leader, I suggest to act as if. Set goals, listen their interest for 15 minutes. Junior employees will be less disappointed if they know why promotions are not realistic
