    I have been working at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great compensation, benefits, 401k matching, and work/life balance. Most importantly, LLNL is a leader in many advance technologies and the work directly impacts the safety of our country.

    Cons

    Being a government contractor does mean there is a lot of red tape. Coming from another DOE contract laboratory, that is to be expected when you are dealing with the government. Commute traffic in California Bay Area can be really bad, but supervision at LLNL will work with you to find what work hours works best for you and your commute (within reason) and are understanding if you are late due to an accident on the interstate. Additionally, housing prices in the Bay Area are very high. Overall the pros far outweigh the cons.

    I have been working at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory full-time

    Pros

    More resources to do research than at universities. You can focus on research, no teaching. Higher salaries than at universities

    Cons

    If you work on a field other than engineering, you may feel the environment far less exciting and vibrant than at universities.
