Engineer working at LLNL

Lawrence Livermore National Lab (LLNL) was recently recognized in Glassdoor’s inaugural Best-Led Companies list.

The Best-Led Companies list honors employers with best-in-class leadership based on Glassdoor’s anonymous CEO approval ratings, senior management ratings and senior leadership sentiment. Employees repeatedly cited leaders’ use of transparent feedback, ability to inspire confidence and demonstrated alignment with their organization’s mission, purpose and vision as the most-admired leadership traits.

On Glassdoor, LLNL has a 4.4 rating out of 5, with 90% of employees attesting that they would recommend working at the Lab to a friend. Anonymous employee reviews highlight LLNL’s “great work/life balance, collaboration, and community”; “exciting research”; and “great senior leaders who are moving LLNL in positive directions.”

LLNL is led by former vice president of UC National Laboratories and UC Davis alumna Kimberly Budil.

“We are so pleased that Lawrence Livermore National Lab has received the distinction of being included on Glassdoor’s first-ever Best-Led Companies list,” says June Yu, interim vice president of UC National Laboratories. “The Lab’s employees are truly its greatest asset and we greatly appreciate the current and former colleagues who have taken the time to share their positive experiences working with the Lab. We look forward to continuing to help make the Lab’s workplace an environment that values, inspires and supports those who work within it.”

LLNL is among 11 companies in the San Francisco Bay Area to receive the award and among the 12% of Best-Led Companies headed by women. See the full rankings at Glassdoor.  LLNL was also recently honored with a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2024. This is the fifth Best Places to Work award the Lab has earned since the award’s inception in 2009.

Glassdoor is a worldwide leader for workplace conversations and career insights. It includes a job site with company reviews, salaries and ratings shared anonymously by current and former employees to advance workplace transparency.
