    Former Employee - Research Assistant I in San Diego, CA

    I worked at The Scripps Research Institute full-time (more than 3 years)


    I loved the flexible hours. As long as I got everything done that day, I could arrive/leave the lab at any time, though finishing projects before my P.I.'s expected date was hardly an issue. I love my P.I., Chitra - very understanding and generous enough with project time frame. Environment and team was great.


    I hardly consider there to be any cons. The only con, if any, might be that the lab could have been more exciting at times.
