I worked at Battelle Memorial full-time for more than 10 years

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 worked at Battelle Memorial for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Diverse work opportunity...when the work is actually available! Technical staff is the backbone of the company, yet they get no support or recognition. Great place to learn to screw the feds out of money. Want to see a VP, just turn around. As they have nothing to do, they are everywhere!

    Cons

    Used to be a great research institution now just a self important management company. Want to get ahead, stab your friend in the back and use them as a stepping stone. Got a military background...we'll creat a VP position for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Depending on bilking excessive funds from the federal government is no way to run a company Battelle is known for being overpriced and late on reports Why? Because battelle has too much senior management drawing exorbinant salaries. They all need to have their hands in the pie to justify their jobs. Try consolidaing you upper management positions and adding some technical staff instead of cutting your legs off reducing lower level jobs when times get tough.
