There is much to recommend HRL Laboratories. Their reputation in the scientific community is impressive. They are located in the mountains of Malibu with a view of the ocean.
HRL is intentionally remote. There is an onsite cafeteria that caters to the staff.
Good work was rewarded and I received several rewards while I was there. I was pushed to be excellent and I learned a great deal while I was there. My co-workers were supportive and worked as a team.
