Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Los Alamos National Laboratory full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The lab has excellent benefits and provides a good work/life balance, but their salaries are hardly competitive--particularly if you are a student being converted into a full-time staff member.

Cons

Slow-moving, very behind the curve, extremely political. There is too much focus on hyper-specialization and not enough on being a generalist when it comes to support staff.

Advice to Management

Care more about talent.
