      I have been working at Brookhaven LAB full-time

      Pros

      Despite some recent layoffs many employees have been there 25 years or more. Not unusual to see people with 35 or more years at the Lab.

      Cons

      Feeling of no REAL diversity or equality. Sometimes it’s too political.

      Advice to Management

      Don’t be afraid to do the right things for the right reasons.
