A place to work if you like being part of a dedicated team with a very important national security mission.
Chief Systems Engineer (Former Employee) – Located by the National Mall in Washington DC – December 4, 2014
A typical day at work runs about 8-10 hours, meetings, phone calls, working group activities, interfacing with project managers, report writing, analysis, project management, reporting to oversight committees and Congress, and supporting laboratory and production sites located across the US. Some travel was required, frequency is job dependent. You will learn all aspects of governance and management of programs and projects that run from tens of millions to hundreds of millions per year. Management works hard to keep the entire NNSA team informed and sets achievable goals and visions. My co-workers were dedicated government employees and support contractors that worked hard to insure that tax payer dollars were being effectively and efficiently spent to support NNSA's diversified mission of nuclear security. The hardest part of the job is insuring all government and regulatory requirements are met or exceeded while keeping projects under cost and on schedule within an unstable federal funding profile. This is also the most rewarding part of the job because it keeps you challenged and fully engaged all year round.
Good benefits, important mission
