    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Foundation for Science and Technology (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - payment happens every month without delay - stable payment, contract is renewed every year after submitting the necessary documents - good salary for a student if you live in Portugal. Could be better but it pays the bills

    Cons

    - first payment was delayed. I had to wait 5 months after getting my approval to get paid - no social security or other benefits, you can sign up for voluntary social security but that is not worth it - the lack of benefits, for example travel subsidy (which you only get once during your PhD) limits where you can travel to attend conferences or buy materials. - untransparent process of who gets a scholarship and who does not - after the PhD ends you are on your own. You can try to compete for a postdoc but there is no real followup happening.

    Advice to Management

    - make the competition transparent - re-introduce travel subsidies or raise base pay - try to ensure continuation after the PhD ends: promote people to teach at the University or so. - Make more scholarships available
