    Pros

    Great colleagues, great science, great view

    Cons

    Not a lot of folks get academic PI positions, less than 10% of post-docs.

    Advice to Management

    Academic science produces papers, grants, and trainees. Salk could improve on the trainees that go to high level positions.

    The idea of the Institution is what I keep with me, work environment isn't the best, at the end you just want to leave

    Pros

    Good place to train for a short period to get ready for the real life. You get fill with the concept of fusion between science and art, is a multidisciplinary institute that help to establish collaborations.

    Cons

    Not a place to grow. Is more the concept of the institution than the reality when you are in. Overall feeling after being for a few years is negative.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes is necessary to build the core of the people that work in here to create a good work environment. I understand that the institute gotta put all the efforts in getting money from investors and donations, but you can't forget that at the end what is important is who is working for you to keep the level of the institute at a high standard worldwide.
