    I have been working at Lawrence Berkeley Lab full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I like the location and views from LBL. I also appreciate how they promote alternative transportation and have a general altruistic mission. There are many academic seminars and forward thinking research projects happening on campus, both at LBL and UC Berkeley.

    Cons

    Working at LBL is what I think it might be like to work at a nonprofit: high pressure, low pay, underappreciated. At first I was ok with it, because I thought the goal was admirable and worthwhile. However, over time I realize that there is a hierarchy here. Too many project managers, not enough engineers on a project. EETD does not value engineers. The department treats engineers like technicians, and only values program managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you need skillful engineers to build your technical infrastructure, you need to start paying and valuing your engineers similar to other companies.
