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

    Pros

    Decent pay, great benefits, flexible hours, very talented people and the opportunity to make a real impact.

    Cons

    Government red tape and bureaucracies hinder progress, taking a lot of work to get little done. This is, however, inevitable in this line of work and industry (Federal Government). Good restaurants are a little ways from the lab so you have to either bring your own lunch or eat at 1 of the 2 subpar cafeterias on campus.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to monitor the pay and benefits of the private sector to ensure competitive compensation to retain employees.

    More transparency when it comes to salary. Don't forget about offering career mentoring for technicians and administrative groups. Everything seems to be geared toward scientists/engineers.

    Pros

    The lab offers great benefits and has events to keep employees engaged.
    The atmosphere is very upbeat and many employees stay at the lab.
    You are not micro-managed and are given freedom. You just have to make sure to get your work done.

    As we are a DOE (government) lab, it takes a long time for processes and change. For example, It takes a long time to get hired, get a clearance, transition out older technology, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Actually, all of the managers I have encountered have been extremely nice, patient, and understanding. No complaints there

    - Work/Life Balance is not where it could be in certain departments.
    - They are stuck in the "we have always done it this way" attitude.
    - Certain jobs are stagnant

    Advice to Management

    - Get to really know your employees
    - Re-evaluate some of the jobs and see where you can boost them to do more meaningful work.

    When was the last time you hired a deaf employee? Recruit deaf, site impaired, and other people with disabilities. Diversity isn't only ethnic, cultural, and gender based.
