Could be great depending on mentor

Postdoctoral Research Fellow (Current Employee) Bethesda, MD

ProsExcellent resources for research.
Decent career advice office.
Good reputation ... if you want to remain in academia (not worth terribly much in the private sector).

ConsSome mentors see research fellows as nothing but easily accessible itinerant labor.
Poor faculty connection to non-academic networks in some specialties means difficult transition from postdoctoral positions.

Advice to Senior ManagementBuild stronger connections to industry as there are likely going to be limited positions in academia in the next few years to take in the hundreds of fellows churned out every year..

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
