    I have been working at NIH

    Pros

    I started working here after college and found it to be a very invigorating scientific environment and good introduction to working life.

    Cons

    The position I was in is really only meant for a year or two, they are expecting that you will go to grad school and not continue working here.

    Advice to Management

    Management could try to provide more guidance about career development opportunities and not assume that grad school is the path everyone wants to take
