    Pros

    Good, dynamic company, scientifically oriented, opportunity to do research, to publish, very diverse scientific environment (chemists, physics, material scientists, biologists, clinical experts: opportunity to interact with interdisciplinary teams and learn). Strong CREDO. Work/life balance is good! Pretty good benefits.
