    I worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Loved living in northen NM. Los Alamos as a town is not great, but Santa Fe is within commuting distance and is awesome. The pay - as a postdoc - is much better than what you'd get in academia. And the hours are more normal (for security reasons, you don't work much nights and weekends).

    Cons

    Scientifically isolated. And it is quite possibly a dying laboratory, unless it re-forms itself into a lab focused on the 21st century, not the 20th (i.e., replace its nuclear weapons work with stuff on clean energy).

    Advice to Management

    Expand and diversify LANL's portfolio of science. Advertise the postdoc salaries and you'd get more interest.


  2. "If you don't bet your future for a conversion, it is a great place to work with some top scientists."

    Pros

    Top scientists in almost every science subject; excellent salary and benefits, low crime, close to nature.

    isolated area, in convenience to travel to major cities; need to align your research with DOE mission; less chance to establish connections in academia world.
