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

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, laid back environment, lots of talented people, wide variety of projects, great place to learn new skills, they'll pay for your MS or PhD.

    Cons

    Fairly gradual career advancement/promotion means young professional may not have the patience to stay more than a few years. Internal IT is antiquated and DOD bureaucracy hinders some projects.

    Try to provide a clear timescale for the career ladder esp. for the young.

    I have been working at Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You get to work on the latest technology. People who work here are highly capable and easy to get along. Retirement match is good.

    Cons

    Lot of your work may never get used (i.e. it may become a shelfware). Raises are small. Bonuses are small and rare. You may end up with projects with very little interaction with other people.

    Advice to Management

    You need to give better raises if you want to compete with the industry. Sometimes project and line managers get excessive credit while technology experts feel neglected.
