    I have been working at The Gladstone Institutes full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great scientific research, friendly people, lots of diversity, easy transportation with even a shuttle to BART, smart scientists, social.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great for the lower people but the executives and directors are highly paid. Rewards, career development and promotions don't really happen. Some managers take care of the people who complain or don't perform more than the people who are working hard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on the infrastructure of the organization including HR services. Value the administration as much as you value the science not just in words, but with career development, raises, promotions.

    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.
