    Je travaille chez Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory à plein temps (Pendant plus de 5 ans)

    Avantages

    As a scientist at the Lab, I have had a range of 'jobs,' all interesting and relevant to the needs of the country. I have done some great research and also worked in a more applied/operational area. My work life balance is pretty great and teamwork has been a total plus within the groups I have been a part of. The benefits are excellent as well.

    Inconvénients

    While pay is good, the process to increase your pay is in small steps, so you have to take the long view regarding your salary trajectory. Of course, the cost of living in the Bay Area makes the 'good' salaries not reach as far. There is the bureaucracy associated with working at a national lab, of course, but I have adjusted to that as a necessary evil. Also, the priorities of sponsors can sometimes change faster than we are able to which means you can end up being tasked with a lot of short turnaround offshoot projects that are aimed to impress sponsors and bring in more money. These are not always effective.

    Conseils à la direction

    Continue the work toward making the Lab a flexible, diverse, and welcoming work environment. The changes are being felt around the lab and they are welcomed.

    Avantages

    Good salary and perks, friendly people excellent work/life balance. They do not run you into the ground. They allow you to explore where you're happiest and may pay for additional education needed.

    Inconvénients

    Doesn't have the sexiness of Silicon Valley, but real work is done here.

    Conseils à la direction

    Focus on the value of the work. Don't try to compete with Silicon Valley on the holy grail du jour, whether "diversity" or other.

    Large campus, feels almost like an industrial park meets college
    Great learning opportunities

    Alternative work schedules available depending on the group

    Inconvénients

    The culture I believe is changing, but it's an older culture. Recognition is usually based on years of service instead of merit or tangible delivery of goals.
    This is also starting to change, but it is a very male dominated company and not much diversity, most people are Caucasian.

    Conseils à la direction

    While the work done at LLNL is challenging, I believe that the biggest challenge facing the lab is figuring out how to keep good people from leaving. The workforce today is motivated by different things than the workforce of the past, but there is still a very large senior workforce at the lab. This means that you will need to be empathetic to both sets of people. There have been studies that say that the generation at the interface between X and millennials make good leaders today because they understand those that came before them and those that came after. I recommend involving people with this type of understanding and empathy in groups that make decisions for the company that affect the culture and values. I think that this will lead to longer lasting effects that keep the workforce healthy.

    Avantages

    I see the lab working hard to be a great place to work, which it is! Awesome science takes place here everyday...it's satisfying to know we are helping our nation not only in weapons but medical advances and so much more.

    Inconvénients

    Old school system of ranking employees to determine raise. It essentially boils down to a popularity contest. If you have a boss that likes you, you can expect a great raise no matter your work output. The opposite is true as well.

    Conseils à la direction

    Find a new way to review employees that removes the boss' personal bias from the process. Continue working to find innovative ways to attract new talent as this is an aging workforce!

    Avantages

    LLNL feels like 10 companies on a single square mile. The opportunities are seemingly endless. I've always enjoyed and balance of Operations and Design. LLNL has provided numerous options to explore.

    Inconvénients

    A significant portion of the employment population is nearing retirement. This creates and combination of opportunity and challenge.

    Conseils à la direction

    With the complexities of the technologies, hazards, and Clearance, stepping into a new role can be daunting. Perhaps mentoring individuals to targeted roles can help.

    Avantages

    Great work environment with lots of support, collegial and friendly atmosphere. I'm surrounded by some of the smartest people on earth, and everybody here wants to make a difference in their workplace and also in the world as a whole. Great mission, great teams, great vibe.

    Inconvénients

    Things can move a lot more slowly here because of bureaucracy. Everything is driven by funding, which can be a little political, and it can feel pretty retro compared to shiny, new exciting startups in the city. But ultimately you get the work-life balance and career longevity that, in my opinion, balance that out.

    Conseils à la direction

    Listen and pay attention more to what's happening outside the Lab, and try to match those work environments and team dynamics (especially schedule flexibility) that other Bay Area workplaces enjoy. Try to stay up-to-date not just with what's going on in Washington, but with what's going on in comparable workplaces around the Bay Area.
