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

    Pros

    Work/life balance for the most part is positive. Many onsite activities to support a healthy lifestyle and flexibility is an option for the most part for raising kids and attending activities.

    Cons

    Micro management is the norm here. Managers are micro-managers not leaders. The culture is slow and tends to move backwards more than forwards. Raises are pretty minimal and do not keep up with cost of living. Not much career growth within the walls.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate redundancy and create a more efficient working atmosphere with a common goal of moving forward as opposed to looking back at how "things used to be done".
