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

Pros

Lots of very smart people, grand scientific challenges, world class experimental facilities and computing power, great compensation and benefits. Opportunities to advance quickly and take on responsibility. Flexibility to move to new projects and develop new skills.

Cons

Government bureaucracy, onerous security rules, feels management top-heavy at times (even when you are a manager), getting jerked around by Congress. High-stress working environment in some projects.

Advice to Management

Speak more often, but say less.
