Pros

Provides decent salary and benefits.

Cons

Unless you have an advanced degree, the career path is very limited.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should look at your experience and can you perform at your level instead of what degree you hold. Too much emphasis on advanced degrees. Forced bell curves rating systems should be abandoned. You should reward the good people and deal with people that don't meet the job expectations.

    Pros

    Does not demand very many hours per week if not in management. Many research projects are intellectually stimulating. Many great colleagues.

    Cons

    Uncompetitive pay and benefits. Uncompetitive compared with more agile and focused competitors. VERY slow to execute. Can be stifling environment for true innovators and entrepreneurial types.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a commitment to be the best again. Go back to the culture of the heyday years. Let the scientists run wild. Put them at the center. Be more like Google or Amyris.
