Great working environment, high scientific quality, good salary, possibilities for additional and social activities.

PhD Student (Former Employee) Heidelberg, Baden-Wurttemberg (Germany)

Pros- scientific excellence
- relatively flat hierarchies
- good salary
- good working atmosphere
- open door policy
- young staff
- high turnover rate
- lots of possibilities for extracurricular/social activities (extra seminars/sports/music/theater/...)
- great health insurance

Cons- less social security (pension/ unemployment insurance) than in many other employment situations
- no opportunity to stay for longer than a fixed period (depending on type of position)

Advice to Senior Management- although there is quite a bit of transparency compared to many other institutes/companies, there is still room for improvement in that regard (e.g. on communicating certain decisions or developments/ future plans etc)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
