    I worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the best facilities in the world. If you want to perform cutting edge research, this is the place to come.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic system of management due to being a government entity.

    Advice to Management

    Find some way to limit restriction on innovation. It gets depressed when great minds must go through so many doors with something as low level as an idea.

    I have been working at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The best part of working for LLNL are the smart Co-workers. It's a pleasure to work with really brilliant people that want to help.

    LLNL also provides a sane work-life balance. They expect you to work hard while you are there but at 5:00 you should go home and live you life. If you have a family or a life outside of work this is a good place to work.

    Cons

    LLNL is slow to change. While this consistency is sometimes a virtue at other times it will drive you crazy. There is just too much management. This layers of management tend to make policies that stifle innovation and efficiency.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the red tape and the amount of management.
