    Pros

    I have not seen any

    Cons

    ill behaved. Management does not know how to place engineer after hire. I was brought as contract employee last week. No work assignment or orientation or training was given. After two days they told to get out. DOE should enquire about this. Very unprofessional.

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here include the pay in comparison to other jobs in the area. Also, if you get with a good group, the co-workers are enjoyable.

    Cons

    There is often a disconnect in communication between the field crew and management. There are also a lot of hoops to jump through because it’s a government run facility.

    Good pay, benefits, hours, low stress level

    (Level 2) Middle Management encourage employees to leave. Talk a great game but never follow through, only do what is in their best interest.

    Knowledge is worthless. It is all about Nepotism.

    Pros

    Great 9 Hr per day work schedule allows for every other Friday off. Good benefits. Excellent paid time off.

    Cons

    Only employees making good money are Union workers. Most get paid $75K plus while having very little responsibility. Those in charge, like myself non-union make about $65K if you are lucky and have most of work assignment. Management always looking for people to blame for errors. They don't value employees at all. Non-union workers are expendable. Union workers can't be touched and get away with everything. Extreme nepotism. Most union workers don't meet minimum qualification for the job they are hired to do. They are all sons and daughters of managers or best friend. Those with strong resume almost never will get jobs here unless they are best friends with hiring personnel.

    Steady but not modern, nor forward thinking

    Aug 31, 2021 - Operations Specialist in Richland, WA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Once you’re hired, it’s pretty easy to keep your job as long as the federal funding comes through. 4x10 work schedule is great!!

    Cons

    Long commutes to work. No rewards for hard or innovative work. You can get luck and get a manager who cares about you but most of the management chain doesn’t care about the people.

    Pros

    Very welcoming, helpful and learned a lot about a subject I knew very little about going in. Management was very friendly and accommodating with work schedule. Work is 4-10 hour shifts a week which gives you three day weekends.

    Cons

    Projects move very slowly in government work.
