Great place to work

Research Fellow (Former Employee)
Bethesda, MD

ProsGood salary, career opportunities, benefits that everyone wants, safe. Multicultural place with specialist in almost every kind of area in science. Great for networking.

ConsFor some people feeling safe in a job is equal to relaxing efforts and standards of excellency. In my very personal case, my manager was very hard to work with.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
