Current Employee - Graduate Student Research Assistant in Berkeley, CA

I have been working at Lawrence Berkeley Lab part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Cool work, big budgets. The lab has the potential to get the most out of graduate student researchers (its better when the division head is also a professor).

Cons

No clear vision for work, no freedom to find own way. Instead of allowing grad students to explore out of the way ideas, they are treated as cheap labor.
