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

    The company itself is great. It has very good benefits plus there is a pension program in addition to a fantastic 401(K) plan with Vanguard.

    Cons

    When I first came on board with the company's office in Arlington, VA, it was a much different place from what it is now. The focus seemed to be more on taking care of people and, as a non-profit company, less on the skullduggery one might expect from 'for profit' companies. Unfortunately, as time went by and I had the opportunity to peer behind the veil, I found that staff members MUST ingratiate themselves to Management in order to have any hopes of moving up. It is favoritism that will get you places, not merit.

    Advice to Management

    Take some leadership classes; stop acting as though you are Battelle aristocracy; you expect staff members to do far too much Company business on their own time; recognize staff members for their merit and make such recognition meaningful; it would be inspirational to have a manager who knew something about their staff; the staff review / performance evaluation / career development roadmap are nothing more than a paper drill with little or no impact.

    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.
