Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Decent pay, not great, but decent. Had to work a lot of overtime

Cons

It's in Livermore, which is literally in the middle of nowhere. Good for a family man, but not me fresh out of college, and looking to experience life. Hours were long, management is hypocritical, not my place to work.

Advice to Management

Give employees incentive to perform, make the culture and environment more friendly to younger generations.

    I worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The location is amazing, pay is great, people are very friendly, amazing benefits.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, which isn't much of an issue as an intern, but I'm told it gets worse the more you hit it. The secured campus makes it hard for any family to come visit your work.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to provide the guidance to interns that you are!

    "If you like boring nuclear or homeland defense, and want to stress out about accounting, work here..."

    I worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    When I came here, they appreciated free thinkers and you were encouraged to develop. Now that UC is no longer in charge, its run like a for profit business, but without the understanding of what a for profit business is about.

    Cons

    Some extremely arrogant and unqualified managers (because people interested in science are seldom interested in management, so the worst go into management...)

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers from outside who have real world experience.
