    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.

    Pros

    Location, attractive campus, good benefits

    Leadership; federal funding is tenuous, and organization has been slow to effectively deal with budget crisis...morale is at an all-time low for support organizations

    leadership is slow to react to obvious headwinds; organization lacks agility to retain skilled and talented staff
