"I have only worked at LANL for about 6 months. I love it here, the only reason I am looking elsewhere is that the housing situation here is dismal so I decided to explore other opportunities to see if something else comes up."

Los Alamos National Laboratory Employee

"LANL is a place that suggests good salaries, but if money is not obtained up front, there is little room for forward progression in the way of upward mobility, and the yearly raises are low. the company average is about 1% to 2% of salary in the way of raises, which is less than cost of living increase. LANL has a continuing problem of not following its own procedures related to human resources and conflict management."

Also, they have a great connection with academic which they are willing to try new theorem and apply to the real problems.
