Intense workplace with a mission to support the naval nuclear fleet
Specialist, Team Lead (Current Employee), Niskayuna, NYSeptember 29, 2013
A routine day of work includes working on quarterly publishing releases, which may come to a screaming halt if a boat is in need. Then, all stakeholders stop what they are doing to solve whatever technical or safety issue is at hand. Teammates collaborate to get the job done.

Good technical work
Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee), Niskayuna, NYFebruary 16, 2012
The technical work at KAPL can be very good, but sometimes the procedures and processes get in the way. The best benefit at KAPL is the 9/80 work schedule where you work 9 hour days and get every other Friday off. It has been great for quick weekend trips or for projects around the house.
