    comparable to most other companies. Management works to give you the time off that you need and is very understanding

    Paternity leave was very beneficial to our family. It was offered by the state and supported by LLNL.

    This is a valuable benefit to many of our young employees; dads get paternity leave as well as the moms. It would be nice if they had equal amounts of leave.

    They only offer the basic coverage through the state of California. You can buy additional coverage, but it's still really not enough. And signing up is hard. Benefits isn't much help.
