Pros

Great people to work with - no back stabbing; exciting technologies and capabilities to tap into to solve problems, challenging projects to work on.

Cons

You will thrive on your own capabilities, not many resources to help if you are struggling -- sink or swim environment. However, the talented people there do very well.

    I have been working at Battelle Memorial full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Battelle is a great place for junior and beginning workers to get experience in procurement in a variety of different projects. Procurement personnel will get hands on experience dealing with vendors and managing projects

    Cons

    There is not a lot of movement once you are in a position and no flexibility to learn new roles in different departments which would only benefit the company. There are a lot of politics that are played and communication does not work well which leads to rumors and paranoid workers.

    If you enjoy stress, politics, remaining stagnate, and the fear of being laid-off, Battelle is the place for you!

    Former Employee - Technician in Columbus, OH (US)

    I worked at Battelle Memorial full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    -Flexibility in work schedule.
    -Salary.
    -Excluding senior management, a very talented group of people to work alongside.

    Cons

    -Way, way, way too top heavy.
    -Constant, unnecessary stress of looming reductions in staff as a result of very poor management skills.
    -Little room for advancement.
    -Poor opportunities for training.
    -Extremely and overly bureaucratic, so much so, to the point of intefering with actual work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start investing in the happiness of your employees, regard their suggestions, and value the exceptional talent they bring to the table. Recreate an environment that people actually want to work in. Greatly reduce all of the bureaucratic hoops because it only interferes with productivity.
