    I have been working at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall environment is friendly, cooperative and collaborative which makes it feasible to conduct multidisciplinary science. One of the strengths of SBMRI is its excellent core facilities including high throughput screening capabilities which enables academic researchers to do drug discovery.

    Cons

    Post-doc salaries are low considering high cost of living in San Diego-La Jolla area and are not increased as often as it should be. In spite of pursuing excellent research, the name of the institute is not well recognized as it has changed several times in last 10 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be more efficient to retain the administrative staff who have been at the institute for a long time as they understand the system and functioning of the institute much better. Also, please do not change the name of the institute again.
