      LLNL allows a scientist to accomplish big science surrounded by resources and incredibly knowledgeable and committed people. The lab gives you a lot of room to grow and explore new ideas, and the support structure (in most cases) is very strong.


      You're working for the government, so all the benefits that may come from working for a private company (frequent bonuses, team building, etc) are nonexistent. Bureaucracy and politics abound (e.g., if you want a promotion, you're more likely to get it by threatening to leave b/c you have an offer from somewhere else than from the merit of your work).

        9/80 work schedule gives me every other Friday off. Choice of multiple medical plans. Ability to work at home as needed. People are great to work with and there are regular all hands meeting to keep us current on issue. Proud to work for a company responsible for the security of our nation.


        Only con I can think of is the 90 mile round trip to the lab. But I work mostly at home so it isn't a big deal.

      Hello, does anyone know of Susan Riedel because she is my hiring manager and said I received the position although has not responded in a day. Is she employed at this company or is this a job scam?



      hey guys, i’m an early career professional and I recently interviewed for an entry level role in procurement. is it a red flag if it was hinted / mentioned a few times during the interviews that the role will be stressful? 🥲 I haven’t done much interviewing as I’m pretty fresh in my career so for them to explicitly mention it will be stressful was a first
