Pros

Scientific freedom, flexible schedule, excellent bachelors/masters associates

Cons

Individual ambition overrides teamwork, can be some "backstabbing," constant fear of being downsized, lack of management support

Advice to Management

Provide more guidance regarding job expectations and better feedback/encouragement about specific work responsibilities (paper writing, supervising, teamwork, etc.)

    Pros

    Great people and very interesting work. Constantly learning new things.

    Cons

    Lots to learn, not a 40 hour a week job and demanding. Real changes coming in the industry because of the Affordable Care Act.

    Advice to Management

    Be straight with employees about what is ahead.
