Pros

Great people, great science, different cultures, flexible hours, science related and interpersonal activities. A great place to grow in professional way as in a personal way.

Cons

The Institute in located far away from the big city, San Francisco, which limits your social life. The institute lacks dorms. You need to find your own living arrangement even if coming for short periods of time.

    Pros

    Great scientists, great science, great location. Easy commute and parking. Depending on which PI you work for the hours can be flexible.

    Cons

    Disconnect between upper management and the scientists. There is no sense of community or loyalty. The culture of the Buck has changed over time. There has been a lot of changes in HR so it is hard to say if there is an issue who to go to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value the scientists since we make up the majority of the Buck Institute and the science we do is what people support.
