    I have been working at US Naval Research Laboratory full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Truly ground breaking science happening here. Good benefits, history of success.

    Cons

    At least in the chemistry division, things are very stressful. There is no internal funding so half your research time will be used begging for money. The grounds and buildings are basically antiques. A lot of people get "stuck" here.

    Advice to Management

    Please do some renovations. It's hard to get work done when the HVAC system goes down weekly and using an instrument can trigger a breaker and cut off power to a quarter of the floor.

    Interview

    Just asked a few questions about some projects I had listed on my resume. Mainly spent time explaining the benefits of working there (they would pay for my masters degree). Very straightforward
