    Current Employee - Research Scientist in Oulu (Finland)

    I have been working at VTT full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Relaxed and informal office culture, and great colleagues (we spend free time together)!
    - Long holidays (30 d/a), and flexible working hours
    - Best brains in Northern Europe as colleagues - someone will know the answer to your problem!
    - Project management responsibility early in career, possibility to affect on the contents of the research projects and work on the topics of your interests

    Cons

    - Getting funding for research projects is difficult, and there is little money allocated for project preparation (even though it takes time!)
    - The research infrastructure is generally good, but some of the hardware (scientific instruments) is a bit worn-out and outdated. Replacement investments are scarce and their processing takes a long time. It is embarrasing to work with customers using old instruments.
    - Salary is (to my experience) 10 % lower when compared to similar positions in industry.
