    I worked at Inria full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, as expected in Research centers
    great work/life balance, as there's so much liberty

    Cons

    Salary is tight
    Little to no-chance of carrer progression
    Laid back enviroment makes some of the permanent become accomodated to their position, without willingness to do better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring policy should focus more on talent rather than who the candiates knows and where it comes from.

    Pros

    Environnement de la recherche décontracté, avec beaucoup de d'opportunité d'apprendre de nouvelles choses, presque chaque semaine il y a des séminaires et des ateliers.

    Releaxed research environment, with a lot of possibilities to learn new things, almost every week there are seminars and workshops arround.

    Cons

    Les gens ne se soucient pas de vous ou de votre avenir, car c'est un institut de recherche et les doctorants et de pos t- docs vont et viennent, les chercheurs fixes, en général, ne se soucient pas de votre carrière future, et devenir un chercheur dépend BEAUCOUP plus de vos contacts que de vos compétences.

    People really don't care for you or your future, as it is a research institute and PhDs and Post-docs came and go, the fixed researchers, in genneral, don't care for your future carreer, and to become a researcher deppneds MUCH more on your contacts than your skills.

    Pros

    Des gens sympathiques et serviables, une cantine avec repas décents à des prix abordables, partenariat pour des activités (ski, musique), très bon équilibre travail/vie privée.

    nice friendly and helpful people, food canteen, decent lunch for very affordable prices, sponsorship of extra curricular activities (skiing, playing music), very great work/life balance

    Cons

    Manque de vision et de valeurs, trop de pensée abstraite, projets sans ambition, règles peu claires, il faut attendre pour obtenir une promotion (qui n'est pas basée entièrement sur les réalisations.)

    lack of vision and values, too abstract thinking, projects are not that challenging, unclear rules, you need to wait before you get a promotion (it's not entirely based on your achievements)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tâchez d'évaluer et de reconnaître ce que les gens font, de rendre les règles de l'entreprise plus transparentes et d'être plus ouvert aux différentes cultures.

    please try to assess and recognize for what people do, make rules in the company more transparent, be more open to different cultures
