I have been working at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Many opportunites to learn field specific methods and technology, great work life balance (no long hours plus flexible schedules including every other Friday off--9/80; great health culture--a lot of cycylist, runners even MMA!), Close to Home

Cons

Uncertainity around all budgets; a lot of restrictions but slowly this is changing (Can't take pictures anywhere, sometimes hard to took about work, Before couldn't do youtube or Facebook...now you can though); for being on the cutting edge of various technology sometimes the IT infrastructure is lacking (e.g. desktop computers on VMshare ware that sometimes creates problems...)

Advice to Management

Best director was "Parney". We need someone like him that is honest and direct with his employees and has a sense of humor.

    I have been working at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really smart people solving really tough problems. Lots of opportunities to work on really cool projects.

    Cons

    Management is not addressing and communicating key issues to employees. Parney was just removed because he was looking out for the employees. Budget cuts, salary freezes, and a sense of being stuck in the past are all bad signs for the future.

    Advice to Management

    Engage your younger workforce or they will start leaving to the private industry that is growing faster by the year in the bay area!
