    I have been working at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great location and surroundings, excellent benefits including children's tuition grant (50% of Stanford University's tuition), great training programs & opportunities. Clear vision and goals from Directors.

    Cons

    Funded by DOE which can be stressful at times regarding Government budgets, every few years new management comes in and tries to reinvent the wheel.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (Menlo Park, CA).

    Interview

    phone screens with the hiring manager and a peer, then (nearly a month later) an on-site presentation to a small group, then silence from the hiring manager, not even a reply to my follow-up email--totally unprofessional
