I have been working at SRI International full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Very exciting projects, relaxed atmosphere, good people, decent work-life balance. The company has high ethics and values and it shows in much of the work it does. University-like atmosphere.

Cons

Some of the buildings are old, some processes/ systems could be more up-to-date, people stuff should be as innovative as the products - Sometimes I feel we are not pushing ourselves hard enough.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your team, drive them to take more risks; become less reliant on Government projects (co. is already moving in that direction)

    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.

    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
