Working @ LBL

Research Assistant (Former Employee)
Berkeley, CA

I worked at Lawrence Berkeley Lab part-time for more than a year

ProsVery nice location: full of nature and it's just behind a quiet Berkeley residence area (north side of the campus). Frequent shuttle service so you don't need a car if you live in Berkeley area or don't mind commuting. Reasonably good pay as it is a national lab. Great machine/electronic shops with skilled engineers. Full of options to search for spare parts or NIM modules!

ConsIf you drive a car to your work, getting a parking space is a pain. You must come very early in the morning, and you cannot leave in mid-day because someone will take your spot...

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
