R&D Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – November 27, 2018
In this group, even the tiniest decisions are consolidated at the top. This position saps my creativity and is extremely demotivating. Good ideas are not considered good, unless they come from the top. To date, four projects have been cancelled, and I have spent much time, effort, late nights, and your taxpayer dollars on them. Sandia is a culture of responsibility, without authority.
Sandia would be more efficient with a 20% reduction in non-technical staff. From my perspective, there are 3 managers for every engineer doing the work. The non-Technical staff invent unnecessary paperwork to justify their position.
The large dichotomy of the people that produce, and the people that watch them produce.
