    I worked at Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute

    Pros

    As a scientist you will be treated well. The work is hard and very demanding. The culture is a cross between an academic environment and commercial pharma.

    Cons

    You have to pull you weight by bringing in revenues from your work. So you better be prepared to work hard. There has been a lot of changes over the last few years. The company has a 50 year history so be prepared for this legacy culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more open communication between the various departments.

    I worked at Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Encouraging and proud to be your employer. Loved them until contract ended, then I was treated like I did something wrong and never found out if I did.

    Cons

    Last one to receive information about your employment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More empathy when delivering news of contract ending.

    I worked at Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    As a contractor my boss did not micromanage, just let me do my work and check in occasionally. That was refreshing.

    Cons

    Again, as a contractor, I had a new two year contract with Lovelace. This one was a subcontract. It was not working out well for Lovelace with the new contract so I was terminated one day, gone the next.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You were very transparent as a sales person. I would have been nice after you fired my that if you really appreciated me as an employee, you might have given a call or shot me an email. That was quite disheartening since all I heard was praise since I had been working there.

    I have been working at Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute

    Pros

    Facilities, work environment, salary, colleagues, some of the benefits, research opportunities, encouraging professional memberships and attending meetings, compilation of online access to peer review journals and on site holdings,

    Cons

    Upper management lack of communication, no employee input, No pass of down of institute information from supervisors, transparency,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You employ very smart people, use them as a resource when having to make tough decisions for the good of the company. It is a mistake to assume your employees would not understand if you inform them of the entire circumstances surrounding these life changing events.

    I worked at Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute

    Pros

    The research environment is excellent. There are some very good scientists to work with and the research environment is very collaborative. There are many common-use instruments and good equipment available.

    Cons

    Women do not get promotions as easily as men do. Pay is better for men than women. Often, men come in with a PhD and 0 years of experience, but get a junior scientist job. Women have to work as a postdoc for 3 or more years before they are offered a junior scientist job. Pay is very low for postdocs and there are no benefits for postdocs other than health insurance - this means no vacation or sick leave!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay should be more in line with other science and industry employers in the area. Women should be treated equal to men.
