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.

    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.

    Pros

    The base pay is good; at or slightly above the industry norm

    Cons

    Benefits get cut every year (they just did another "reorganization" in summer 2012)
    Managers are aloof, unconcerned, and otherwise disinterested in the 30+ people they "manage"
    ZERO opportunity for advancement, growth, lateral moving, taking on more responsibility, or anything the like.
    Everything is manage-by-email

    Advice to Management

    If you have a PM that has been there for over ten years, and people underneath him are quitting every year or two (i.e. turnover is > 10%), you need to start asking the hard questions. And yes, it is effecting the bottom-line (we go to another gov't place, whisper in the COTR ear, and Battelle "loses" another one....
