Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Great technology, good co-workers, laid-back environment

Cons

Hyper-security focus, stifling bureaucracy, humorless management style.

Advice to Management

Google it up. Give us free orange juice and croissants, add a decent gym, etc. Cheap investments in a positive work environment would make a big difference. Grey undecorated walls and ugly carpets are a drag.
