Great place to work with brilliant people working on the tough science
Electronics Technician 5 (Current Employee) – Richland, WA – August 18, 2015
My days are spent typically designing PC boards and helping design novel circuitry for radiation detection. I also help scientists with documentation for proposals and papers.
I have leaned a LOT about radiation, and how it is detected, from large amounts to very tiny amounts. I also learned how to design circuitry to detect this radiation.
Our management tends to be rather "hands off" which I consider a good thing.
The people I work with have got to be the best part of my job - I only have a BSEET in electronics, and I work with PhD level folks who treat me like an equal - they are some of the nicest people I have EVER worked with or for!
Hardest part of my job is everything is charged to a project, and if you don't have a project to charge to, you don't get paid!
Best part: Again, the people I work with,
Positive work environment, teamwork
You have to "find" projects to work on, healthcare benefits
