Good place for mid-career individual to contribute

QA Lead (Current Employee) Livermore, CA

ProsVery smart people, interesting projects, leading edge science, cooperative atmosphere. Benefits are good, 401K + match is 2-3X commercial companies, ability to switch jobs w/o leaving

Consbureaucracy, too much overhead, endless training, too many long=timers, lack of urgency, some projects are surprisingly backwards in technology and methodologies. Discontinuous government funding on some projects make it hard. Alas not the same as the UC managed days.

Advice to Senior Managementrecruit from outside more, especially mid-career people who can add their experience and wisdom, do not people get complacent

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