Parney and Ed

Parney Albright and Ed Moses, two peas in a pod. Read this blog http://www.dickdestiny.com/blog/2006/08/war-on-terror-will-be-very-very-good.html and you will understand where LLNL is headed. Is LLNL working in the national interest? Is LLNL a national asset or a national liability? Why are you still working at LLNL? These are questions that strike at the core of the issues that surround the deterioration of what was once a very important laboratory.

I'm still working at LLNL because I have interesting work, great colleagues and serve the public interest.

After reading that nonsense, I finally understand Paul Simon's song partially titled "... desultory phillipic."

One needs to be kinda spacey, alive but subrational, like a person that stood up too fast or coughed too hard, to glimpse the meaning held within...

Very interesting. People seem to forget that it was Moses' arrogance that led to the technical failure of the laser isotope separation program due to liquid metal embrittlement of the collectors. People like Ed and Parney repeat their behaviors as they move up the management chain. History is often a good predictor of the future. To paraphrase, we seem to be reliving it in these two individuals. While the two are not exactly peas in a pod they each in their own way appear to be equally destructive when it comes to guiding an organization as important as LLNL.

Not sure if your aware of this but ... the year is 2013 not 2006.

I'm just a peon here but I've got to say this: Don't need this garbage thrown at Parney right now - knock it off.

Parney is at the helm. His decision. LLNS is not being ran effectively or in good faith with its employees. Parney could elect to make a difference or not. To this point he has not engaged the issues in a material way. What issues? LLNS TCP1 contribution controversy, Akima/FTE changes to policy, highly paid top heavy management of non-producers, etc.

Parney is a good man,doing the best he can with a very difficult, dysfunctional, egotistical group of government bureaucrats. At least he communicates with us, whether it is good, or bad news. He has made strides to modernize LLNL, and bring us somewhat up to speed with modern social media technology. This fosters better communication. I for one think he is doing as good a job as resources allow. Walk a mile in his shoes, then judge.

In what way has Parney not operated in the national interest? What has he said or done to show he hasn't operated in the national interest? Specifics!

Do not assume that because these are "issues" on this blog that they matter at all to LLNS management. I suspect there are much more serious problems that Albright needs to worry about. Your list is self-serving, juvenile, and parochial.

I wonder when people like you are going to realize pension and benefits concerns will always overrule anything else Parney has on his plate. People with a brain concern themselves with issues of their livelihood, security and welfare not science, facility or mission. Until Parney and corporate America understands that they'll continue to go down the toilet at Mach 1.

Workforce (that is the people who actually perform the day to day work) are part of the management triad. Failure to keep a happy dedicated work force (not to be confuse with happy managers) is a amateur's error.

What direction will the new PAD for Engineering take? Another reorganization perhaps?

If you had been around the Labs much in the last few years, you would understand. Large fractions of the work force will remain chronically unhappy until the Labs return to the old UC run model. Or they retire. Since the former is only a pipe dream, that leaves them in the workforce for some time. Parney understands this reality and should not waste effort to consider delusional concepts.

In that case you are correct. Treat your workforce poorly. That's the solution for success.

Parney a political prick just like 99% of all upper management. Your new work for life slave labor workforce is going to take you far. Good luck with that fools

At least they'll be able to recruit managers, because words already getting out on how the day to day folks are treated.

I've complained here and vented just like the rest of the people here but I actually respect Parney and think he is actually changing the course of this sinking ship, doing his best.
