Casual environment, but demanding
Information Technology (Former Employee), Newport News, VADecember 23, 2011
Pros: casual culture, good benefits
Cons: long hours, demanding (sometimes unrealistic) expectations
The campus is impressive and the environment is casual. You can wear jeans every day of the week. Their compensation and benefits are above average and you get paid time off over the Christmas holidays. However, you can count on long hours and the expectations are very demanding. If you are hourly, this may result in extra pay, but if salaried and exempt – more... from overtime, you will not accrue any compensatory time for working overtime. Overtime is expected because Jefferson Lab is in the midst of an upgrade to the accelerator facility and it is unlikely they have the resources to accomplish their goals. – less
