Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Generally Stable
Breadth of technical experiences
A large range of interesting research
bright scientists and engineers
Outdoor sports opportunities
no traffic

Cons

Very few entry level positions filled in past 10 years
Advancement opportunities limited
Not very diverse
Nuclear weapons work makes you unpopular in Santa Fe
Not very many people around. Dating is poor unless you are female

Advice to Management

Managements duty is to make money for their private company by meeting DOE goals. Management does not do a very good job of producing results for customers.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory as an intern (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay and job security and good if you are a scientist. There are lots of different types of work if you qualify for them, so you can move around if you get bored.

    Cons

    Los Alamos is a boring town with very little to do and has created a very strange corporate culture. The lab is large, unwieldy, and generally mismanaged. Not good for non-scientists.
