Years of Experience
Workers who have been with the company for more than one year but less than five can make $54K annually on average. Those who have five to nine years of work experience see average salaries of approximately $64K per year. The largest fraction of Argonne National Laboratory people (27 percent) have been working for 20 years or more and earn about $100K annually on average.
The highest average salaries go to Assistant Research Scientists, who bring in close to $94K per year, though Postdoctoral Research Associates are not far behind at $64K annually.
Certifications and Degrees
Argonne National Laboratory provides the highest financial reward to those with a Bachelor's Degree — these employees rake in around $54K per year.
When it comes to skills, Project Management seems to bolster pay the most; employees who claim proficiency also enjoy a median income of about $115K annually. A common skill in Argonne National Laboratory's work force is Research Analysis; a little less than one-fifth of survey participants report using it on the job. Many workers are also familiar with Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Office, and Linux.
Benefits and Perks
A lucky few (one-half of survey participants) are fortunate enough to be compensated for both vacation and sick time. Workers wishing to put aside retirement money are in luck; Argonne National Laboratory sponsors various plans such as a 403(b) plan and a 401(k) plan. Health insurance comes as part of the deal for almost all employees, and almost all respondents report receiving dental coverage as well. Some other perks are a casual working environment, tuition reimbursement, and 401(a).
