    I have been working at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory full-time

    Pros

    -Work-life balance is good
    -People keep to themselves. This can be good or bad depending on your perspective. There is very little socializing in or out of the office among employees

    Cons

    -No flexibility to work from home
    -Pay is low, benefits are fine, but health insurance is getting much more expensive
    -Unproductive workers and those with negative attitudes are tolerated by management - much to the detriment of their colleagues (the vast majority of whom are nice people with strong work ethics)

    Advice to Management

    Compensate your workers appropriately - pay is nowhere near market value. In a poor economy, I suppose that people will accept what you pay them, but when the economy improves, expect to see those workers who actually have ambition and marketability leave for more fair compensation and career growth. Give people the option to work from home - even one day a week would be a dramatic improvement and greatly appreciated. Deal with the negative employees immediately - they create a poisonous work environment for everyone else.
