Pros

Very flexible work environment; great work life balance. Ability to work on multiple projects and change projects if desired.

Lack of support of working on innovative ideas that are outside current funding scope.

Advice to Management

Promote innovative and outside-the-box thinking more. Keep pursuing multiple/alternative funding sources

    I have been working at PNNL full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is a lot of funding and thus a lot of resources than a typical research lab in a university. And there are people from different backgrounds that can help you from different angles. Overall, it is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Usually, there are too many samples to run on limited instrument, and you need to wait a long time to get your results and get your research moving forward.

    I have been working at PNNL full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been at the Lab for more than 20 years because it has great work/life balance, but like alot of other things at the labs, this flexibility is decreasing.

    Cons

    Definitely an old boys network in management.

    The Tri-Cities has a very limited job market. So if you become dissatisfied with your work at the lab, it means packing up your family and moving. Management knows that people don't want to move, so the raises are tiny. You can negotiate a decent salary when you begin, but it won't last.
