    Great working environment, high scientific quality, good salary, possibilities for additional and social activities.

    PhD Student (Former Employee)
    Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg (Germany)

    Pros- scientific excellence
    - relatively flat hierarchies
    - good salary
    - good working atmosphere
    - open door policy
    - young staff
    - high turnover rate
    - lots of possibilities for extracurricular/social activities (extra seminars/sports/music/theater/...)
    - great health insurance

    Cons- less social security (pension/ unemployment insurance) than in many other employment situations
    - no opportunity to stay for longer than a fixed period (depending on type of position)

    Advice to Senior Management- although there is quite a bit of transparency compared to many other institutes/companies, there is still room for improvement in that regard (e.g. on communicating certain decisions or developments/ future plans etc)

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
