Ups and downs

Biomedical Scientist (Former Employee)
Livermore, CA (US)

I worked at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat pay, really smart and dedicated co-workers. Lots of opportunities to learn and do more things.

ConsThe politics can be tough to navigate. There are some who will make getting things done difficult in order to protect their territory. Shift from management from the University of California to the consortium has taken away a bit of the charm.

Advice to Senior ManagementProvide more clear career paths for younger employees. Look to root out those who put politics before good science.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
