Great workplace with flexible schedule, but standard worries for working for a government with financial issues
Energy Analyst Student-RPP (Former Employee) –  Golden, COFebruary 15, 2013
I enjoyed working there. There is a lot of beurocracy, but the company is great to work for. Most new hires get hired on as contractors or temporary to hire, and there has been a pay increase freeze for the last while, but they are expanding the number of workers on campus. The hours are relatively flexible and the workspace is very nice.
Pros
can work from home 1 or 2 days a week. flexible schedule
Cons
pay freeze and contract employment to start.

Great experience for graduate students
Research Intern (Former Employee) –  Golden, COFebruary 22, 2018
Gained experience using up-to-date characterization equipment with great guidance. Not enough money in renewables currently to support this large facility so access to equipment was plentiful.
