    I worked at MIT Lincoln Laboratory full-time

    Pros

    Academic focus, broad mission areas, ability to move internally, lots of effort to retain employees. Try to keep stable workforce and avoid layoffs, mostly successfully.

    Cons

    Seeking growth in constrained environment. Prioritizes managing up instead of technical development. Lots of marginal utility programs and work pushed down to Group Leaders and staff. Staff members are facing more and more work for little gain.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate growth strategy - the lab isn't handling it well.
