Wide variety of research field

Process Engineer (Current Employee) Princeton, NJ

ProsThe company does research in many fields, so it's always interesting to see all of the cutting edge things your colleagues are doing. The lower level management at my satellite office is pretty good - hands off and very supportive of continuing education.

ConsWorking outside of the main campus at Menlo Park, I don't tend to identify so much with SRI, but my satellite office. My satellite office doesn't have the climate of a college campus that I hear about from the main offices in Menlo Park, which is unfortunate.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    No longer the center of innovation

    Research Engineer (Former Employee) Menlo Park, CA

    I worked at SRI International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros: - Incredibly flexible work schedule - Free Annual Caltrain Pass - Great vacation accrual - Defined benefit… Cons: - Un-competitive pay for Bay Area - Due to non-profit nature, profitable division prop up unprofitable ones, so compensation/bonuses are limited - Career development is largely internal,… Advice to Senior Management: "Non-profit" doesn't mean you don't have to invest in your employees. Too many employees are willing to comfortably toil their days away in labs, but… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
