I worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Great benefits, that's about it, easy to slack off and do nothing while getting paid.

Cons

Management has no shared vision hostility between projects no sense of teamwork

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you're going to be a for profit company hire some business pros and let scientists be scientists not managers

    I have been working at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly and generally supportive environment.
    Flexible schedules.

    Cons

    1.9% salary raise last year, and none so far this year. No bonuses unless you receive an award from your division, and you can estimate that to be $100-$300.
    Lots of red tape and politics.
    Too many meetings - it is hard to get work done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers are excellent, but there are just too many managers and that makes it harder to get anything approved. Please hire more young people instead and work on creating an effective mentoring program so that you retain them.
