Pros

Lots of events and seminars with prominent speakers to attend. Get the sense that the faculty really care about the research associates/analysts/graduate students/postdocs in their lab. Faculty are attentive to concerns of their lab members. I feel like I have a project that could someday lead to better prevention and treatment of patients - so I feel very motivated to keep working.

Cons

As is the case with any large university/corporation, there is a lot of bureaucracy to get through before one can get started with doing any experiments. The pay is not great given that I have to pay rent in San Francisco.

Advice to Management

Try to provide more/better funding to students and staff.

    Pros

    Flexibility, availability if top professionals in the field, there is always opportunity to Lear new things,

    Cons

    It depends on your supervisor your work environment. My supervisor was very strict about schedule and she even planned when I could take a break. My coworkers were very nice always willing to provide support and very well prepared, but always stressed about daily deadlines .

    Advice to Management

    More employee training should be implemented.
