I have been working at Lawrence Berkeley Lab as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

-Awesome location - Berkeley is AMAZING
-Easy access to the city (San Francisco)
-The internship coordinators are awesome and they have a very organized and fun program
-Meet tons of other interns and develop meaningful relationships
-Work on a project that has an actual significance
-It was a very satisfying and rewarding experience
-The culture is awesome up at the lab -- people are open and welcoming
-Mentorship opportunities or almost limitless, whether they be formal or informal, or whether that mentor is a person in your lab or outside of your lab

Cons

You may be placed in a project that may not particularly interest you but it is usually something that suits your skills. The coordinators are also willing to work it through with you

    I have been working at Lawrence Berkeley Lab full-time (More than 8 years)

    Great people to work with. Interdisciplinary research well connected to the UC system. Benefits are great (heath insurance, retirement, etc.). Nice research facilities.

    Hard to get internal promotion (often political). Mentor ship can be great but often mediocre. Work life balance is not great especially with children.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Lawrence Berkeley Lab full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great food, environment, very green minded. Person experience with boss: more lenient than industry, good health insurance, vacation & sick days, etc. Interesting stuff, have learned a lot.

    Cons

    Frequently shrouded in fog (on the hill), bureaucratic beyond anything else I've experienced, sometimes can't take days off due to experiment overriding personal life.

    Advice to Management

    If there is a day where we will be let out early, please let us know earlier than the hour in which we are free to leave. Scientists in the middle of experiments rarely get to enjoy the luxury.
