Good place for stability

Postdoctoral Fellow (Current Employee) Menlo Park, CA

ProsGood support to grow professionally.
Surrounded by very smart people working on interesting projects.
Respectable and well liked CEO.
Good work/life balance.
Freedom to pursue your own interests, as long as you can raise the money!

ConsWay too much bureaucracy.
Facilities are very old and run down.
Basic support (e.g. IT) has to be paid for directly by research groups.
Postdocs undervalued as reflected in compensation (like in most academic settings).

Advice to Senior ManagementResist the temptation to treat postdocs as itinerant labor with compensation that does not reflect the advanced education, skills, and responsibility they have compared to research associates who are paid the same, and sometimes more.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
