Robotic Engineer Student Intern (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NMSeptember 10, 2013

Professional Enjoyable work enviornment
Technical Student Intern (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NMJuly 31, 2013
As a technical Intern in the computer engineering field I learn how to go about a problem and solve the problem in a professional manner. I learn all the steps necessary to deliver a solution that was reasonable and acceptable. I learned to program using Microsoft Visual Studio, Microsoft .Net, C#, and SQL database.

Productive workplace without micromanagement
Software Development Applications Engineer (Current Employee), ALbuquerque, NMJuly 9, 2013
A typical day includes writing c# and vb.NET, SQL Server, html, JavaScript and CSS code, communicating with team members and testing code. We have weekly programmers meetings, monthly team meetings and occasional department meetings.

We are encouraged to learn new technology and there are plenty of training classes to choose from.

Management is always – more... available to help or answer questions. We are never micromanaged, but they have an open door policy.

All of my coworkers are very knowledgeable and helpful in their areas. Everyone is very willing to help everyone.

The hardest part of my job is finding testers to find bugs and stress test the web apps.

The most enjoyable part of the job is doing the actual coding and have everything come together as one big application. We also have snacks at most of our meetings. – less

Tough environment for a postdoc
Postdoctoral Appointee (Current Employee), Livermore, CAMay 12, 2013
The research itself is great and the resources for performing the work are second to none. The culture is really tough, however, and there seems to be little incentive for the PI's to treat postdocs with respect or to care about the postdocs' future employment opportunities. I imagine as a PI or manager this might be a wonderful place to work. However, – more... as a postdoc, it is really quite bad at times. – less

I learned quite a bit as a contracted student intern. Being surrounded by knowledgeable people is a great advantage when working on difficult projects. It was also nice having access to cutting edge technology and a wealth of printed resources.

Great place to be...
Office Management Assistant (Current Employee), Livermore, CaFebruary 25, 2013
Pros: on site cafe, on site medical center, summer-time farmer's markets, professional development courses
Cons: below industry pay
If the only thing you are concerned about is pay, this is not the place to be. But, if you want to work with some brilliant minds, care about being able to work and see your family, want room to grow and are looking for an organization that cares about the community within which it serves and priming their employees for success, then this is definitely – more... the place for you. – less

not for what I was hired for (Former Employee), AlbuquerqueFebruary 20, 2013
Pros: clean building, some nice people
Cons: skirt chasers, sandian's treat contractors like dirt, except if you are the person being chased..then you are given "the world"
While I was there, there is a lot of "skirt chasing," even the married ones do it. Linked to the skirt chasing comes your promotions or whereever/whatever you want in the company.

very interesting work related to national security
Postdoctoral Research Associate (Current Employee), Livermore, CAAugust 28, 2012
Research projects are very interesting with a broad range of subjects. It is possible to work on a variety of projects, but some initiative is required to get involved in projects outside the primary project to which you are hired.

Decent Company to work for

As a staff augmentation contractor you fill positions at Sandia where extra hands are needed on projects. You are exposed to great deal of variety and have the opportunity to learn many new things. The attitude at Sandia is very up and coming in exploring the latest technology and its many uses.
