Great place to work

(Former Employee)
Menlo Park, CA

ProsThis Institute is the most under rated places to work in Silicon Valley. It's everything you want in a job community. The researchers here are nice, talented, and ethical. Not a lot of weirdness or out-of-control egos.

There are a few quirky SRI artifacts that wind up being interesting at the very least.

I believe with the right attitude, you can affect change at SRI. It's just a little slow in terms of decision making.

The campus has incredible potential (70 acres in the heart of Menlo Park).

The cafeteria is pretty awesome.

ConsSure. This place has issues just like any work environment. It was always little things that bothered me like the bathrooms from the 40's, and a blindness to certain things like composting, putting in bike racks for commuters, etc. And, a tolerance that maybe goes on too long for mediocrity on the operational side of the business. Ermagard, there I go complaining about facilities again.

Advice to Senior ManagementGreat job, just not enough of you. The following roles would be helpful additions to the senior management team: an operational president, CIO, and maybe a VP of strategy. Seriously, you're understaffed. Please hire more business development people. Perhaps someone with expertise in current Internet business models would be a useful to the organization. Now is the time to leverage the huge Siri (purchased by Apple) win.

Also, please consider spending more on SRI's employment brand. You'll attract more talent.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
