This is a great place to work

Research Associate I (Current Employee)
Cambridge, MA

ProsYou are doing great science and get the chance to work at one of the premiere research institutions in the world. There is no place like it.

ConsPay isn't great, as is the case in academics. Research can be frustrating and unless you have the patience and fortitude to go through with it, this isn't the place for you.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think Broad is fantastic and has fantastic and understanding management. I think that maybe a gym membership could be included in benefits, so that it encourages scientists to keep fit.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent place to work

    Computational Biologist (Current Employee)
    Cambridge, MA

    I have been working at Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard


    Pros: Working with top-level researchers, open collaborative environment, very exciting projects, many large-scale projects that not many academic/research entities can afford, high-profile publications, job stability, good… Cons: Unclear career path for staff researchers, the organizational structure is quite flat. With many groups/labs/operational entities… Advice to Senior Management: Better oversee communications between groups/platforms within and between projects Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
