    I have been working at Bettis Laboratory full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work 9 hours a day and get every other Friday off. Pay is average for engineers, good for administration/business. Start off with 3 weeks vacation and get 4 weeks by the 3rd year.

    Cons

    Company culture is awful. No one talks to each other..they just hide in their cubes and stare at the clock until the day is over. Management definitely plays into that culture. They do not interact with their employees at all, and don't mentor. If a manager asks how your day is going, consider yourself lucky. Not allowed to interact with coworkers because talking might distract others. Employees seem jaded and overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Your people are leaving. Do something about it.

    Pros

    Work-life balance is exactly as advertised. Since this is government work, you can't take your work home, nor can you talk about it even if what you're working on isn't classified. Every other Friday off and there's always someone there to help you do your job. I don't see the "good ol' boys" or lack of female management here. I currently work for 4 female managers and they are all very capable. Managers are very supportive...

    Cons

    Lower pay than similar career industries, but the work-life balance seems worth it (to me). Lots of nit-picky paperwork that borders on semantics.
