highly paid managers

After a work force reduction, why is llnl hiring new high paid managers that are on support dollars?

comment:
It is what they do when they need to get a big pay raise just prior to retirement. Please who needs any blue collar workers. Didn't you know that it's management who's the backbone of the lab and totally responsible for its success. I mean, come on, look around you.

This is an excellent question. When does LLNS release an overhead manager previously released from an overhead position. As an example, a former Jacobs Vice President now a NIF employee, who qualifies as a highly paid manager (>$250/yr) was released from position > 6 months ago has now resurfaced in F&I on a 3 month trial assignment. Given this employee was NIF's lead for instituting the new lab-wide construction contract, now viewed as The ACS Debacle, is positioned to award more design work to Jacobs when design services contracts are awarded. We lost our talent to voluntary retirement and replaced them with what?

If you think this is "the real problem," You are seriously deluded.

you are right, hiring a manager is not a problem. Since they get their salaries from project overhead tax, one can just make a small increase in all projects overhead and, voila, there is enough funding.

Speaking about hiring managers, does anyone know anything about the new hire, Dori Ellis, that was on Newsline last week ?

The NNSA labs are run like the Mafia. The highly compensated lab Directors are the Boss, the Directorate heads are the Consiglieris, the Division heads are the Capos and Group Leaders are the Mafia foot soldiers.

It's a corrupt system headed up by a bunch of "made men" who reward each other and who take the prime cuts right off the top of every dollar that passes in front of their noses. Any person who becomes a problem for this corrupt organization of "made men" is quickly "eliminated".

The top post should be "highly paid manglers."

I heard that a couple of people in the Materials Chemistry department (including Adam Rowen, the manager) at Sandia booked a trip using Sandia funds to Hawaii to attend the 2012 ECS meeting. That is definitely a waste!
