LLNL is an overall good employer

Analyst (Current Employee) Livermore, CA

ProsMany opportunites to learn field specific methods and technology, great work life balance (no long hours plus flexible schedules including every other Friday off--9/80; great health culture--a lot of cycylist, runners even MMA!), Close to Home

ConsUncertainity around all budgets; a lot of restrictions but slowly this is changing (Can't take pictures anywhere, sometimes hard to took about work, Before couldn't do youtube or Facebook...now you can though); for being on the cutting edge of various technology sometimes the IT infrastructure is lacking (e.g. desktop computers on VMshare ware that sometimes creates problems...)

Advice to Senior ManagementBest director was "Parney". We need someone like him that is honest and direct with his employees and has a sense of humor.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
