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

Pros

lots of flexibility; you can do just about anything as long as you can find a way to pay for it
not restrictions for collaboration opportunities

Cons

day-to-day experience very dependent on group; no evident attempt to weed out bad group leaders as long as they bring in research money

    It was challenging, rigorous, and boring all at the same time.

    I have been working at SRI International as an intern

    Pros

    Intelligent colleagues but there's not much interest from them towards helping others. Assumption is that everyone comes in, contributes, goes home. No one will really bother you as long as you do your work

    Cons

    Not really any camaraderie, and no real excitement. If you're looking for a place to go where you'll bond with colleagues and live an incredibly exciting life -- this is not the place for you. Could be if you looking for vice versa.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Inspire competition and camaraderie.
