Intern / Summer Student (Former Employee) –  Los Alamos, NMOctober 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."
Pros
Great place, great people
Cons
Sometimes, you need a break from the full immersion work life.

Most enjoyable is working with suppliers from pricing to specifications and negotiations of terms and deliverables. Culture is more difficult at LANL.
