Pros

There are multiple avenues to learn at the Gladstone Institutes -- research-in-progress seminars, weekly seminars, lectures, distinguished lectures, lab meetings, etc.

Cons

PIs, senior investigators, etc. can improve their management skills. They should motivate employees with positive reinforcement rather than by intimidation. This obviously varies from manager to manager.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is important to update employees on their performance regularly, always emphasizing positive things. Please do not only meet with employees to discuss improvement--this is a motivation-killer and a poor way to manage employees.

    Pros

    The level of science is truly exceptional. The environment is very collaborative. Open floor plan for each institute which makes it easy to get to know everyone working there, and to collaborate with anyone that can help you.

    Cons

    The institute takes themselves a bit too serious. They believe that everyone works there is excellent, and that they are the best place to work ever. At the end of the day it really depends on your PI and the lab that one works in how your work experience is going to be. Like everywhere, there are good labs and bad labs.
