    I have been working at New Mexico Consortium as an intern

    Pros

    I worked as a summer intern for the Ultrascale Systems Research Center at the New Mexico Consortium. USRC is a relatively new group focusing on HPC research.

    My impression of the the USRC is that it's one of the most vibrant HPC groups at LANL -- probably because it's new and relatively free of the lab's bureaucracy. There are incredibly smart people here, people are interested in their research, and super nice. Great place to be if you're interested in the future of HPC or scientific computing.

    Cons

    Leadership is very hands-off. I think this is pretty normal in a research environment. That said, working here requires a lot of self-motivation and willingness to dive into the deep end.

    Los Alamos is a very small town. Santa Fe is about 40 minutes away, but still a small. So the experience here can be isolated.

    I worked at New Mexico Consortium full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great environment to learn and progress professionally
    - Good interaction with scientists from Los Alamos National lab.
    _ Great mountains for hikes

    Cons

    - City of Los alamos is small with limited urban life and snowy winter can limit or make travel to Santa Fee and Albuquerque not so easy.

    Advice to Management

    - Increase chances of interactions with external companies and Universities to improve research funding.
