I worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory full-time for more than a year

Pros

Decent pay, not great, but decent. Had to work a lot of overtime

Cons

It's in Livermore, which is literally in the middle of nowhere. Good for a family man, but not me fresh out of college, and looking to experience life. Hours were long, management is hypocritical, not my place to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give employees incentive to perform, make the culture and environment more friendly to younger generations.

    Terrible portable buildings for many workers, frustrating and enigmatic security policies, complicated political battles and territorial squabbles, nowhere to go professionally, tendency to offload employees to contractor positions, uncommunicative management, confused technical direction (in IT)

    I worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The location is amazing, pay is great, people are very friendly, amazing benefits.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, which isn't much of an issue as an intern, but I'm told it gets worse the more you hit it. The secured campus makes it hard for any family to come visit your work.
