I have been working at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- APL encourages creativity/innovation through various internal projects that all staff are encouraged to contribute to.
- Good benefits - Gym, matching 403b (after the first year), vacation + sick leave, health, dental, vision (limited), life insurance, etc.
- Continued education and training is HIGHLY encouraged and paid for. There is a great Masters program for those who want to work full time and get a MS.
- Great work environment. Everyone is friendly and respects each other.

Cons

- Very little oversight for new employees. This was my first job out of college and had a rough time with my tasks and expectations with very little direction.
- Politics - I tend to stay out of politics when I can, but many of APL's sponsors are Government related, which can make things difficult.
