    I worked at NIH full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The scientist are top notch at NIH. The resources are abundant and available. Their is a closeness with your peers.

    Cons

    Unless you have a degree in the field you are employed in than you are left on the outside of your group. Team building is hit or miss and if you have a degree, moving up the ladder is much easier than not having a degree. This goes double if you are a contractor looking to become a fed. Unless you have really caring, competent management you may feel like a second class citizen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not forget the contractors who do much of the work. Work to make them feel more part of the group rather than and outsider.
