"A once great Lab, falling fast."

May 18, 2023 - R&D Scientist


Excellent and knowledgeable coworkers. Nice location. Good and diverse work and facilities.


Seriously inept middle and upper management. Ridiculous adherence to badly-written procedures. Increasingly woke hiring practices. Dishonest management. Broken travel, procurement, and performance

Advice to Management

Get some real-world experience and stop pretending. As a class, the senior management is by far the weakest link at Los Alamos. Stop managing up and start leading your people.

    Average Interview


    Interview was fairly easy. I had to give a presentation and then we proceeded with the questions. All questions were behavioral based in terms of how you handle different situations. There were no technical questions at all.

    Tell us about a time you had to handle an issue as a manager and how you handled it.
