Good but not Great Place to do a Postdoc

Current Employee - Postdoctoral Research Associate in Jupiter, FL
Current Employee - Postdoctoral Research Associate in Jupiter, FL

I have been working at The Scripps Research Institute full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Location, smaller/more intimate place than a typical large college atmosphere. Proximity to large cities and the airport. Collaborative atmosphere among divisions. Pay is good for a postdoc, equal to the typical NIH stipend.

Cons

too many HR employees/hoops to jump through; support facilities, in particular NMR, are not suitable for the number of employees attempting to use them. Jupiter campus does not receive any of the job fair benefits of the California site.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

work on getting better connections for employees post employment; job fairs need to come to Florida or chemists will continue to have a hard time finding employment after current positions.

    Current Employee - Research Assistant II in La Jolla, CA

    I have been working at The Scripps Research Institute full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are decent and not that expensive. Great discount benefits and retirement program.

    Cons

    Institute has really cheapened over the last few years. Each year, benefits cost more and the annual required raises we used to get don't exist anymore. Plus the fun has also wanted: we don't have any holiday parties anymore or summer picnics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more employee appreciation -type events.
