Pros

SRI has a great history of innovation and this culture fuels its forward progress. It is one of the few institutions in Silicon Valley that has excellent integrity and ethics. If you can contribute to the success of your projects, you'll have a rewarding career here.

Cons

SRI, like all research-oriented contractors, is subject to the influence of the economy. When the government and private businesses are not investing in research, it can be a challenge to find a projects to which you can contribute.

    Pros

    Lots of smart people, respectful culture, generally interesting work. Government contract work is not as sensitive to economic downturns as commercial work.

    Cons

    Government margins are defined and quite thin.

    Strategy is reactive and scattered, driven by whoever needs our services at any given time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a vision to dominate a market and go after it.

    Pros

    Lots of research projects. Freedom to create your own research projects and working on it. Laid back and easy environment. You most likely get your own private office. It offers the benefits of a company in an academia-like environment.

    Cons

    It can feel a bit boring at times. There is not a lot of fun activities on the campus. The average age range is high.
