    Pros

    - Salary. - Flexibility in work schedule. - Good basic benefits. - College campus like working environment.

    Cons

    - Sometimes oppressive and silly security/safety rules. - Employee services not on par with other high tech companies in the Bay Area – the Lab use to have a large swimming pool, softball fields and Lab sponsored clubs. - Move to “for-profit” contract structure with federal government for operating the Lab, and loss of University of California academic “not-for-profit” culture and replacement with industrial business culture. - Little of the profit made by the new company running the Lab is put back into the Lab facilities or passed on to employees. - Many new senior and middle managers brought in by the new company are from socially/politically “conservative” regions of the country and do not like the progressive/liberal values held by many of their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your offices and talk to employees.
