    I have been working at IBM Research

    Pros

    state-of-the-art facilities and top researchers, freedom and openness

    Cons

    lots of people 'say' things instead of "doing" things.
    very small chance of be able to convert to regular research staff member
    projects/assignment for post doc sometimes are not exciting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    lots of post docs are working so hard trying to get RSM positions while lots of RSMs live on others' work. please find a way to balance these two

    I have been working at IBM Research

    Pros

    The location where I am working is somewhat isolated in a natural park. So the view and environment are very beatiful. Most of the offices have windows too. Cantina food is not bad, mostly mexican and american and relatively cheap.

    Cons

    I don't really like the IBM thinkpad computers we have to work with. Of course everything is IBM, including the office software, which is Lotus, not Microsoft Office.
