Mission: Bringing Science Solutions to the World
I have been working at Lawrence Berkeley Lab full-time
This is a great place to work as an engineer if you enjoy working on interesting problems and contributing to science.
Things are set up such that people lead projects based on science accomplishments and not based on project management skills. Funding agencies don't seem to understand how to fund sustainable software
Advice to Management
Management needs to work with funding agencies to stress the importance of software engineering, if they truly want to build sustainable software for science.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Lawrence Berkeley Lab.
Challenging. Panel ask questions and each panel member takes turns. After interviews, the panel decides if the candidate can come for a 1:1 interview with the Business Manager. If the candidate is liked by the business manager, the candidate gets called in to meet with the manager they will be working for.
