    I have been working at Battelle full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The opportunity to excel at what I do best in a professional environment. The respect of fellow engineers. Minimal exceptions to working 40 hrs/wk.

    Cons

    The commute is long. There is an excess of work, but typically limited to 40hr/week regardless of workload.

    Advice to Management

    Evaluate the volume of actual work and determine whether additional employees or added work time should be authorized.

    I worked at Battelle full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Location is in Idaho Falls which is excellent for family life, outdoor recreation, safe, clean working environment. Pay is very good for the area. Variety of jobs within the company that allow for movement. Help with advancing your education. Near a satellite university campus.

    Cons

    The ever pervasive dark cloud of whether funding will carry on another year. Decisions in government affect your employment. Can get lost in the crowd without much say in the direction of the company. Some contractors that come in take what they can before moving on to another government entity to manage.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employee's professional training. Value the employee's contributions and build a sense of ownership the empoyees can be proud of. Smile!
