    I have been working at Alden Research Laboratory full-time

    Pros

    Interesting and challenging fluid flow/component testing projects primarily related to power generation (hydro/nuclear/fossil/renewable). Management is doing a good job trying to diversify into new areas. Alden is a small company so there are a lot of opportunities to get involved in all aspects of a project from start to finish if you are ready and willing to take on the responsibility. 32 acre campus often referred to by visiting clients as "an Engineer's sandbox" because of all the different types of projects being worked on at any given time. Great benefits and a good easy going culture. Low turnover.

    Cons

    Small company so opportunities for advancement may not come as quickly as in some larger companies. Some projects require around the clock testing which can lead to stretches of long hours. Some of the laboratory facilities are getting a little beat-up from years of testing/projects.

    Advice to Management

    Continue exploring new business areas to offer our services to. Invest more into maintaining and upgrading facilities. Communication with employees has been good but can always be improved. It would be great if Ownership and senior management could spend a little more time walking around checking in and talking with the staff.
