What a Scam
Scientist (Former Employee), Boulder, COMarch 18, 2014
Pros: vacation time, work/life balance, 401k match.
Cons: no real jobs, just scams!
This once great institution has been reduced to mish mash of part time/student employment opportunities.
Consistently one will find jobs posted that require computation/scientific skills that only a handful of people have, yet the position will either be posted as looking for a student intern of a project scientist I, which pays about as much as an – more... undergraduate would expect to get in their first year after school coding Java or C#. In addition almost every job (except the rare replacement position) is a term position. Used to be 3 year terms, now I see it is almost always a 1 year term.
Also, technology at the institution is stuck in the 1970's, with ancient language such as fortran ruling the day.
Poor management, elitism and complete lack of any clear perception of reality has tainted this institution.
Steer clear. – less

Working for a great cause
Software Engineer (Former Employee), Boulder, CONovember 13, 2013
Pros: work towards a good cause
Cons: pay rates, budgets tied to federal budgets.
The University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) manages the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) and focuses on research and training in atmospheric and Earth system sciences. The organization has a very academic environment, with a loosely federated, functional structure. The pay tends to lag behind the private sector, but offers – more... good benefits such as educational assistance, retirement plan, child care, etc. – less
