    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 10 Jahren bei US Naval Research Laboratory (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Freedom to pursue areas of interest and the opportunity to take advantage of internal funding as well as ties to other DOD funding agencies. Cooperation among different research groups is usually encouraged. For the most part, the employment is stable and cut throat competition is not the norm. The support personnel are helpful and hard working and realize that their primary goal is to enable and support the... scientific research.

    Kontras

    Although better than most DOD labs, there are still many counterproductive rules - computer security is increasingly intruding into ability to carry out research. There is subtle agism and favoritism in some advancement decisions - group managers are powerless to provide financial incentives. Since all promotions are tied to levels of management, one is stuck with the very poor personnel skills one would expect... from manager-scientists with no management training. Quality of life is mediocre. Nice view of the Potomac River plus the odiferous reminder of the Blue Plains sewer treatment plant next door. A once active health club is barely maintained and underutilized. Food service is mediocre and not health promoting - Subway and a cafeteria. Thankfully food trucks are now allowed. Under the FERS retirement system one is at the mercy of the stock market and government contributions are not as attractive as company 401K's

    Pros

    As a scientist or engineer you have the opportunity to work on ground-breaking technology.

    Kontras

    Administrative support is less than non-existent. In many cases the bureaucracy itself justifies its existence by instituting and/or enforcing rules and processes that stifle creativity and expedient execution of ideas. Expect to spend 25-50% of your time on administrative tasks.

    Rat an das Management

    Remove the bureaucratic overhead or shutdown the lab so that money can be more efficiently spent at FFRDCs or other quasi-government organizations.

    Neutrale Prognose

    Ich arbeite seit mehr als 5 Jahren bei US Naval Research Laboratory (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    There is a lot of freedom in terms of what type of research you can do. The retirement benefits are awesome and the flexible schedule/time off can't be beat.

    Kontras

    Management is pretty terrible. They seemingly don't listen to, respect, nor care for their workers. There are more administrators and secretaries, most of whom aren't interested in helping you even if it is their job to do so, than researchers. The salary is low. The commute is a nightmare. Salary and benefits are at the whim of a dysfunctional Congress, which has recently resulted in very low morale. As the... budget tightens, fighting over research money has made for a bad atmosphere. Most importantly: the opportunities for growth and advancement are practically non-existent.

    Retire and let some new blood create some much needed change.
