    I have been working at Oak Ridge National Laboratory full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Always learning. Supportive management. They value research and personal growth. Ability to contribute meaningfully to larger projects according to what each person brings to the work.

    Cons

    Limited room for titled promotions. Must have patience for safety and working within a regulated work environment. Hiring is deliberate but slow and physical infrastructure is older, leading to the need for extra maintenance and spares.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (Oak Ridge, TN) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I had a casual 40 minutes phone interview with an recruiter. This is a first step before an on-site interview. The recruited would reply me back once the screening is processed.
