- 4.0Aug 10, 2021Software EngineerCurrent Employee, more than 3 years
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
- 5.0Apr 20, 2021HPC Software DeveloperCurrent EmployeeLivermore, CA
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.
