    Former Employee - Numerical Control Engineer in Oak Ridge, TN
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Y-12 National Security Complex full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are great. Some great people you'll never see since they are on the cleared side.

    Cons

    You will wait over a year for a clearance with NO work to do, enough to drive anybody insane. The longest 10 hours of your life, every day, every good website is blocked.

    Advice to Management

    Find more unclassified work, you can't hire young and hungry engineers and then let them go insane with boredom before quitting. I wasn't even allowed to cut my hours (though allowed by company policy) to attend school.

    Need to update old building

    Advice to Management

    Look at each individual and their experiences instead of what credentials a potential employee may possess. You may overlook the most qualified, loyal, and best fit for the position employee.
