    1. 4.0
      Aug 10, 2021
      Software Engineer
      Current Employee, more than 3 years
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook


      The work is compelling, worthwhile, and largely makes a positive impact in the world. The compensation and work-life balance is decent. The proximity and exposure to some of the brightest and high-performing scientists and engineers is a huge plus. There is no lack of opportunity at the lab and the career paths are encouraged. The lab will also help pay for most schooling and provides ample opportunities for growth.


      The vast amount of bureaucracy suffocates even the simplest of tasks. Even collaboration between the DOE National Laboratories is plagued by a lack of common tools and a surplus of restrictions. I've got three sets of RSA keys to access each National Lab network and none of our systems talk to each other. Getting any hour of meaningful work done is usually accompanied by an hour of red tape, signatures, acronym-swimming, and centuries-old web tools. Even the "updated" timecard web page is barely functional (uptime only 60% of every hour) and follows archaic processes and deadlines.

      1. 5.0

        HPC Software Developer
        Current Employee
        Livermore, CA
        CEO Approval
        Business Outlook


        Strong job security and stability, good work/life balance, multiple opportunities for pursuing work with different teams and areas. Novel opportunities to work on world's fastest supercomputers and new computer architectures before the rest of the market.


        Compensation is limited to salary only + health benefits. No profit sharing, stock options, etc.

      I have an interview tomorrow where I get to ask questions to the interviewers. I usually ask questions like “how long have you worked here” “what’s your fav thing about working here” along with the obvious “what would be your expectations of me and how do you measure it” any other good ideas for questions?
