    I worked at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    very relaxed and flexible environment. very low stress. Perfect job for a student. Some groups are doing some great research and there are opportunities for collaborations and being proactive on other studies. Open 24/7, gym and showers, play soccer on fridays. Made a number of good friends.

    Cons

    Sometimes was not challenging at all. it was quite easy to do nothing all day and just goof around. the research itself seemed kinda lacking and slow paced, especially compared to NIH. Publications were mostly non-existent and the workforce was often not very ambitious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is not much room for growth within the groups as positions are usually static. Maybe create promotions i.e. lab tech 1, 2, 3 etc with pay increases depending on performance.
