Interesting work with fun people
Technician (Current Employee) – Durham, NC – February 9, 2015
The research work is very interesting, some of which has potential to make real impacts in our society. I enjoyed the people I work with very much and have fun at work. The downside is the nature of research, especially government funded. The flow of business is very unstable and without proper leadership you get periods of extremes in amount of work. This is also complicated by the fact that Southern Research works in multiple, very different fields with multiple facilities. So one area may be doing well while another may be doing poorly. The uncertainty can be frustrating. The benefits and pay are average. It is fun to work with smart people and on interesting projects.
Fun co workers, work is interesting
no clear direction, disorganized upper management, advancement is closed to non engineers
