I worked at Lawrence Berkeley Lab full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

High level or research and discourse. Excellent facilities to carry out a research plan. Small, walkable campus (assuming you can handle hills) makes collaboration easier. Proximity to the UC Berkeley campus also allows for strong collaborations with faculty on campus. Lab bus system makes the city of Berkeley very accessible, and run reliably enough to rely on as a primary mode of commute transportation.

Cons

A bit too tied to government money, making funding very volatile. There are increasingly less DOE-funded positions, making most researchers tied to soft money, making it difficult to have a career-length outlook. Space can also be an issue depending on division, and is not evenly distributed across divisions and groups.
