I have been working at NIH full-time

Pros

The people who choose to work at NIH do it because they care about creating new medical knowledge that advances human health. They have the right values and believe that they are making a difference -- which turns out to be true. They are.

Cons

In the current political climate, congressional support for all basic research and science has been on the decline, which is causing painful choices about what can be supported within NIH. Also, DHHS rules, especially around travel, make it hard to get things done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The role of leadership is critical in these challenging times. Institute directors need to be much more visible and supportive as their staffs struggle to adjust to current changes. Clear planning is needed when deciding priorities in the face of scare resources.

    Pros

    You are exposed to the most advanced research facilities available to scientists. As such, NIH attracts many bright minds that are always building on other's ideas. For the most part, schedule is not too intense.

    Cons

    As with any research facility, there are times when not too much is going on between projects and waiting for experiments to take place.
