    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at USEC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people and place to work. Good pay rate. Security Clearance from Department of Energy. Lots of opportunity for advancement and/or to even change jobs.

    Cons

    The only real Con of mention is that as a sub-contractor for Department of Energy to produce LEU. (Low Enriched Uranium) for peaceful, commercial applications. Company relied upon Department of Energy to build facility. D.O.E. has ceased funding and plant is being shut down at the Piketon location.
