Grew up in area
IT Project Manager (Current Employee), Los AlamosAugust 20, 2012
Pros: benefits are awesome
Cons: los alamos as a whole sucks
The Lab is a great place to work. The pay and benefits are better than average. The work is challenging and fun. There are some chiefdom's among the long-term staff; which can be bureaucratic at times and frustrating. Job security is varied based upon the type of position hired on to perform. The advancement is not as good as it used to be. There is – more... no life and no young people; not a place for singles. The lack of restaurants and culture is depressing. – less

Excellent work environment
Systems Engineer (Current Employee), Los Alamos, NMMay 24, 2012
Pros: awesome teams, willing to teach you, willing to learn from you.
Cons: academic bigotry runs a little rampant
Typical work day is fast paced with ever changing demands. I could not write all the things that I have learned but an example would be how to write parallel programs. Most mangers are awesome. I work with some of the most brilliant minds in the world. Hardest part of the job is staying on top of technology while remaining grounded with still in production – more... technology. The ability to challenge myself to greatness. – less
