    Pros

    Excellent company to work for at the Hanford site. The work is challenging, pay is excellent, convenient 4-10 schedule, and outstanding 401k match with excellent, low deductible health care coverage. The company truly seems to care about its employees.

    Cons

    Government inefficiency & environmental overregulation can interfere with the progress of the work scope. Too much of an us versus them mentality between the union HAMTC workers and the corporation. Longevity of the site can lead to a bit of a good ol' boys mentality and/or nepotism when filling positions.

    Pros

    Most of the employees are really nice. Also there is an abundance of really really smart people. Its pretty cool getting to know the people working there. Compensation is really good.

    Cons

    Government contract with to much red tape. Simple jobs take months. No matter what your total of job function should be, all work consists mostly of paperwork. Strong union presence makes doing anything fun out of the question. You can't even move your own office furniture or plug in a monitor, keyboard or mouse.

    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.
