I have been working at Lawrence Berkeley Lab full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great food, environment, very green minded. Person experience with boss: more lenient than industry, good health insurance, vacation & sick days, etc. Interesting stuff, have learned a lot.

Cons

Frequently shrouded in fog (on the hill), bureaucratic beyond anything else I've experienced, sometimes can't take days off due to experiment overriding personal life.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If there is a day where we will be let out early, please let us know earlier than the hour in which we are free to leave. Scientists in the middle of experiments rarely get to enjoy the luxury.
