    Cons

    Sandia National Laboratories was by far the best place I ever worked. The pay was good considering I was living in Albuquerque with my salary was more than enough to pay my bills. I was able to move around quite a bit and learn many different skills and software.

    My main complaints are the impossible requirements Sandia has in place in order to be considered for full time employment. The GPA requirements make little sense to me, and they will not even consider a person whom has worked there for years as a contractor simply because their GPA is a 3.5 and not a 3.7? Sandia hiring practice is now about who you know, and it doesn't seem to be so much about actual skill, which I find very disheartening. And lastly, it is very easy to grow stagnant here especially when not given meaningful tasks.

    I feel that many of the engineering departments are wonderful to work in. The business departments-not so much. The assignments constantly change with little or no guidance for the business interns.

    Advice to Management

    Dispose of the GPA requirements for hiring new employees, and be more open to hiring UNM graduates
    Fire employees who are dead weight just collecting paychecks
    Utilize the interns and give them meaningful tasks without overloading them
    Put the most competent people in management
    Start working on innovative projects again
