    Pros

    It is a great stepping stone to get you better opportunities elsewhere, establish good collaborations from within the organization, and to perform solid scientific research.

    Cons

    It is very difficult to be promoted or to get a tenure-track position within the institute, as well as being extremely competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Due to the increasingly competitive nature for acquiring grant funding, it would be of benefit if Scrripps would allow other primary sources of funding other than just the NIH, particularly for junior researchers.
