    I have been working at Howard Hughes Medical Institute full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    HHMI is a company with great benefits and had an environment supportive of a work/life balance. Janelia Research Campus is a beautiful place to work and is filled with smart people who are doing interesting things, but not everyone raves about their work experience or growth opportunities. I've personally had sufficient opportunities for advancement that I've stuck around for a while, but most of that is because the managers I've worked for cared about me.

    Cons

    There are too many managers, and some of them seem to create obstacles for the people under them instead of removing them so they can perform to their full potential. There's a lack of trust and effective communication between and within some departments that really hinders progress on some long-term projects.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of the way. It's not about you any more. You should be doing everything you can to help the people who work for you to excel and to build their careers. If you can do that, it'll pay off for you, as well.
