    Pros

    Stimulating place to work with ample opportunities for learning, collaborating with world class colleagues, and contributing to a better world.

    Cons

    Fundings in many areas are heavily linked to government budget. With recent impasse in Washington, quite often many good ideas have to be on hold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be agile and stay close to the action.
