Lots of very smart people that are used to doing things a particular way

Research Advisor (Current Employee) Indianapolis, IN

ProsGreat pay. Nice town. Smart colleagues. At the principal research scientist level and above, You are generally given the freedom to decide what to do and how to do it. This is a place that openly celebrates promotions and devotes a day to do so, with spouses. Family friendly. Interesting mix of very creative and very conservative approaches.

ConsA lot of pressure to produce results. Promotions don't always go to the best performers but to the people that play the game well and smooze with key decision makers. Can be cold and snowy in the winter.

Advice to Senior ManagementValue teamwork more and do not micromanage.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
