Intern / Summer Student (Former Employee) – Los Alamos, NM – October 1, 2013
Working in a remote national laboratory gives a unique opportunity to fully immerse one's self in their work. Colleagues were passionate and hard charging as a result of the full immersion environment.
My immediate manager was fantastic and was responsible for developing the entrepreneur in his people. For example, he said "Your job is to do your job so well that the position becomes obsolete."
Great place, great people
Sometimes, you need a break from the full immersion work life.
Physics Intern (Former Employee) – Los Alamos, NM – November 27, 2017
As an intern, I was basically paid to learn about the physics behind what happens at the isotope production facility, then I was put in charge of a significant portion of a future radiation experiment. My mentor, Jon, was incredible and taught me a lot.
alternating 3-day weekends, great learning environment
