Pros

Great people to work with, Great Job satisfaction, Fair compensation (could be better!!!) , Great location... Livermore, CA. You are working with brilliant people who are dedicated to the research they are doing. This makes work fun, even exciting some times.

Cons

Great place to work, but if I had to come up with one downside, increases in salary have been slow to come.... Compensation package (insurance, etc...) have been getting worse year after year... I guess this has been the trend for companies for several years now, but it's starting to be an issue with me.

Advice to Management

Quit thinking employee retention is a given, this job requires the best minds in the world for you to succeed. In order to retain this caliber of staff you may need to exceed the local pay/benefits packages by some small amount, instead you are currently under the local pay/benefits packages.

    Pros

    These guys are the worlds experts in HPC computing.
    The codes are mind blowing. Lots of C++. New technology. Not afraid of technological change.
    The modeling problems are unbelievably cool. Fluid flow, structural interaction, etc.. etc...

    Cons

    It is a little bit of that creepy 50's cold war thing.
    If you leave every where else will seem like a two bit operation.
    The corporate rhetoric is a bit disrespectful to employees, which is a shame, since management actually seems
    to treat employees quite well.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a good job. Maybe a little .less wiffle-waffling on the technical directions
