Pros

The labs usually have more than sufficient funding to do research.
Competitive pay and benefits.
Great place for biomedical research.

Cons

Bureaucratic organization and management.
The office and HR loves and only cares about paper works.

Advice to Management

They need to think about career development for employees (that are not PIs), and about work-life balance of employees (especially research associates). Currently they do NOT seem to care.

    Great health benefits, matching option for the 403b

    Cons

    Low salary compared to pharmaceuticals; can be unresponsive to problems.

    Advice to Management

    Don't put all your eggs in one basket! Remember that the PI is able to do his/her job BECAUSE of the tireless work we do behind the scenes.
