    Pros

    Good place for student workers. They do bulk of the work for Biology people. Its nice environment to work for.

    Cons

    Nothing that bad. I wish they had more funding to support more projects and more students. The funding runs out anytime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management skills are good. Although it would be nice to see it get more funding to keep continuing the cool projects

    Pros

    There are lots of intriguing projects. The possibility existes to be creative when solving problems. There is a good balance here between work and family. The Institute is always involved with cutting-edge research, so people who work here can often feel like inventors.

    Cons

    University funding is limited, and sometims the staff is considered somewhat expendable. There is little effort to keep payscales in line with market rates, so it is always up to the employee to push for compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to think about staff as a resource to be developed, rather than a tool to be used or discarded. Managing a research institute as a business is a good idea, but there is a limit to how far that analogy can be pushed.
