    Point de vue positif

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

    Avantages

    Not only does groundbreaking research happen at NRL but it also gets transitioned to real-world systems. You can be a part of the entire cycle from basic to applied research and then eventually to transition. The work-life balance is amazing and it's a very low-stress environment.

    Inconvénients

    The pay for a PhD in an equivalent field (for me) is almost twice as much in the private sector. Upward mobility is nearly non-existant. Things often move at an extremely slow pace.

    Conseils à la direction

    streamline the acquisition of materials & support, facilitate leadership development, promote from within, and offer better base pay.

    Point de vue neutre

    Je travaille chez US Naval Research Laboratory à temps partiel depuis plus d'un an

    Avantages

    These guys have helped me to the max in my coursework and dissertation. I get to work on interesting things and have a great work environment.

    Inconvénients

    You have to give up some privacy to work for the military.

    Conseils à la direction

    Do everything possible to make applying for the first time less intimidating. Once I was in the system and met the people responsible it was no problem but at the website it looked scary.

    Point de vue négatif

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

    Avantages

    NRL has a relaxed work atmosphere where you can really make your own success. As a research lab, you can work on your own research projects to guarantee your position is something interesting. Employees are personable, knowledgable, and tend to work together without much issue. Health and retirement benefits are pretty top-notch (5% match for IRA-alike along with a pension!)

    Inconvénients

    As a governmental research lab, NRL is subject to all of the dysfunciton gripping our current political system. Furloughs have already been forced due to sequestration and a potential government shutdown looms in the future. Further, automatic pay increases have been suspended for years, leading to NRL salaries lagging further and further behind private sector positions.

    Conseils à la direction

    For the most part, NRL's major handicaps from my view relate to the overarching political situation in this country, which management has little ability to control or resolve. At best, they can try to buffer their employees from it as much as they can.

    Point de vue négatif

    Je travaille chez US Naval Research Laboratory à temps plein depuis plus de 8 ans

    Avantages

    Great place to learn and grow in your field of research. Plenty of opportunities for training. Direct supervisors provide lots of freedom for you to figure out what type of research you want to pursue.

    Inconvénients

    Current political climate is making it difficult to keep current funding or pursue new funding. Too much micro-management by upper management. Transition paths for science and technology remains broken in the government.

    Conseils à la direction

    Fix the transition pipeline to allow more research the opportunity to compete, and get out of the way.
