    I worked at PNNL (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere. As a recent college graduate I was able to work along scientists and post-docs and learn so much. I was treated as an equal employee and not as a little intern. The area is great! There are many chances to tour the facility and surrounding area. I highly recommend it!

    Cons

    I do not have anything negative to say about PNNL

    Advice to Management

    I appreciate the time taken by the scientists to give their advise and knowledge to me
