    I have been working at CHORI (Children's Hospital Oakland Research Institute) as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    relaxed environment, nice and friendly people to work with

    Cons

    Since it's surrounded by big research institutes like UC Berkeley, UCSF, etc it's harder to compete and standout, limited budget

    Lacking morale, unnecessary bureaucracy, management does not serve its scientists to their research well.

    little or no administrative or teaching duties

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead. Think out of the box. Plan for long-term development and not for short-term survival. Invest in your scientist and their tools.
