    401k is not as good as other national labs. health insurance are good. time off are also good enough for a postdoc.

    Pension plus 403B (non-profit version of 401K)

    Policies regarding time off are fairly flexible and managers tend to be very understanding. The insurance policies are pretty comprehensive and favorable. The retirement packages could be better and the pension takes a long time to get vested.

    Interns get medical dental and vision insurance even at part time. Great benefits.

    ESL is a joke and you have to use all of your PTO. My child was sick I had to take FMLA and then my husband needed help and I wasn't aloud to use my ESL again so I had to take unpaid leave. They claim to have work/life balance but don't actually implement it.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Communications in Golden, Colorado

    Solid choice of insurance types, optional pension, flex time and the chance to work from home one day per week.

  • May 04, 2017
    StarStarStarStarStar Current Senior Energy Analyst in Golden, Colorado

    Skimpy maternity leave compared to other companies.

    Top notch benefits including pension plan (vested after 5 years). Top notch benefits. NREL offers a 403B plan rather than a 401K. Another benefit relates to work environment itself: i.e., NREL is in a scenic location. One of the main building on campus, the Research Support Facility (RSF), is an award winning building (google it for details).
