      There are lots of positive changes happening at LLNL. New buildings, facilities, processes. Work-life has always been amazing here and continues to improve in so many ways. Company is doing a lot to embrace hybrid working.


      Some new managers don't seem to know what they are doing and don't understand the concept of a working manager. Instead, they believe in just passing the work down to others who are already over-burdened. Lots of people are leaving and moving on to other things. It's a bit of a concern.

        Great benefits and great workers!


        The salary is ok, but could for certain improve. The vast majority of managers do not know what it means to be a manager. They are almost only there if something you did goes wrong, or to micromanage every little move you make. They do not listen to ideas of any kind, and act as though they are the gate keepers, those with all of the knowledge above all else, other than those above them. Very counter-intuitive to the Operational Excellence campaign implemented sometime ago. It will lead to a revolving door once all the pension vested employees retire.

      Anyone here interviewed for a designer or any other role at PwC? I just got a self recording video interview request and wanted to understand the process and difficulty level of the questions. Thanks!
