A university environment with an industry spin.

High Energy Density Physics Intern (Former Employee) Livermore, CA

ProsSmart people everywhere. You're surrounded by extremely intelligent people at all levels. Located in a beautiful part of California. The Lab is involved in just about every area of Science and Engineering in some way or other. There are seminars going on across the campus every day that can help you stay current in your field.

Relating specifically to the intern program, I was definitely happy. I got to work on an interesting project, and I was definitely making meaningful contributions. The best part was the interaction with other interns. The lab brought in something like 300 interns from its various summer programs, and interacting with them was a great experience.

ConsIt's a big government organization. Sometimes you have to deal with a whole lot of red tape and infrastructure.

Advice to Senior ManagementProject mobility is important to maintaining a versatile workforce, keep it up.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
