Challenging and rewarding place to work for a scientist or engineer

Physicist (Current Employee)
Livermore, CA

ProsLots of very smart people, grand scientific challenges, world class experimental facilities and computing power, great compensation and benefits. Opportunities to advance quickly and take on responsibility. Flexibility to move to new projects and develop new skills.

ConsGovernment bureaucracy, onerous security rules, feels management top-heavy at times (even when you are a manager), getting jerked around by Congress. High-stress working environment in some projects.

Advice to Senior ManagementSpeak more often, but say less.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
