    Je travaille chez US Naval Research Laboratory à temps plein depuis plus de 3 ans

    Avantages

    NRL has some of the leading researchers in their field and the latest and greatest equipment. The potential to collaborate and work between disciplines is good.

    Inconvénients

    Management direct as a whole changes frequently and is brutal for entry level scientists look to move up. The moral is low and work expectation are extremely high.

    Conseils à la direction

    Employee moral is extremely low, and that can be better achieved through support on the scientific programming and career development and less on the fluff.

    Point de vue négatif

    Je travaille chez US Naval Research Laboratory à temps plein depuis plus de 5 ans

    Avantages

    I am a research oriented person and there are interesting research work in NRL if you can obtain funding. There are a lot of very smart and talented people here providing a challenging and intellectually stimulating environment. I appreciate the opportunity that has been provided to me so far. Also with the tough economy, this place seems more stable than most of the industry. There is also a great history of... research in the laboratory. The people are overall friendly. Also you usually get your own room to work in. A generous healthcare and retirement plan should also be mentioned.

    Inconvénients

    You constantly have to scurry around for future funding either through the base program (which only funds 20% of the laboratory internally) or DARPA, ONR, NAVAIR, etc. To obtain funding is challenging because you are competing against universities and other laboratories. This has sometimes lead to people pitching ideas that they do not necessarily want to work on. Salary growth has been fairly stagnant and there... was a recent sequestration in 2013 for the first time in the laboratory's history. Cost of living in the area including housing, groceries, raising kids, etc. is very high whereas the salaries have been relatively flat. I see some trouble ahead with reduction in DoD budget and reduction in basic research. Also there is very little interaction inside a division or outside a division within the laboratory. Finally if you are trying to raise a family, you will have to compete against people who are fresh from school and have more time on their hand to work. Security clearance and issues are always annoying but then again, that is part of being DoD.

    Conseils à la direction

    Give salary increases as they have been stagnant. Too much pressure

    Point de vue neutre

    Je travaille chez US Naval Research Laboratory à temps plein depuis plus de 10 ans

    Avantages

    Good science and interesting applications. Dedicated and committed staff. Good balance of strategic and tactical projects

    Inconvénients

    Too much time spent looking for funding. Lack of funds can lead to silly inter-office politics. Uninvolved and disengaged Management that often competed with their direct reports. Commute can be difficult

    Conseils à la direction

    Help scientists with their ideas. Be more involved in their development
