Positive learning experience at MCS

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Lemont, IL

ProsIntensive intellects and creative research energy at MCS. Lots to learn, work is based on your own initiative. Unlike academia, at this lab you focus on producing software that helps research. I learned a lot, but with a PhD, not much of a career path available to me.

ConsTerrible project planning skills and elitism of the PhDs over everyone else. Salaries are below industry averages, and with the current budget fights, most salaries have been frozen.

Advice to Senior ManagementTeach project planning to all your employees involved in research, development, and logistics.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
