    I have been working at CWI as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lot' s of freedom, in terms of ideas, and in terms of filling in your working hours. Lot's of activities with colleagues.

    Cons

    No career build-up possible at the moment, could be more connection with industry and start-ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set up an industrial support unit, separate from the scientific institute, as an interface between companies and CWI. To prevent scientific topics from being washed away by industrial issues and to capitalise on ideas in emerging fields such as big data and encryption.

    I have been working at CWI

    Pros

    There are many great scientists in mathematics and computer science working in the building. It's a good place to have research experience with.

    Cons

    Due to the economic situation, it's not likely to get a long term position there as a young researcher.
