    Excellent scientific and technical staff. Friendly meetings and collaborative research are encouraged. Training is offered to anyone. Excellent world-wide reputation. The Institute is overall well funded. Good salary for academic research.

    Under financial pressure due to its governmental funding. Administrative staff is mainly very helpful but some glitches can be encountered. Work-life balance can be hard to achieve in some research teams. Very difficult to get a tenured position.

    Pros

    Très bien située, il y a des parcs tout autour.

    Des gens sympa. Les horaires ne sont pas imposées. On attend de vous que vous remplissiez un nombre d'heures données au cours de la semaine.

    Ils préfèrent voir les tâches confiées accomplies au final plutô

    Very well situated, parks all around.
    Nice people. Working hours not forced. You are expected to fill asked amount of hours per week.
    They mostly expect the given tasks to be done in the end rather than keeping you inside.

    Cons

    Le dernier bus en direction de la ville est trop tôt si vous souhaitez profiter des infrastructures sur site après le travail.

    En raison de la politique de l'entreprise, vous ne pouvez pas rester dans la R&D plus de 5 ans sauf si vous êtes en contrat indéterminé.

    Last bus to city is too early if you want to enjoy in-site facilities after work.
    As a company policy, you cannot stay in the R&D more than 5 years unless you make an unlimited contract

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
