    Pros

    Everyone works extremely hard; people will stay after hours to get their work done. Management is great and helpful (if not entirely present). There is ample growth opportunity so long as you work hard and get published

    Cons

    Group collaboration in the office is in short supply. Machinery is often broken, which makes it difficult when an experiment needs to get done right away.

    Pros

    Very nice housing at Rice University and keeps the students well knitted and interactive

    Cons

    Had very little leeway as to what project you want to carry out during the summer, most students winded up doing wet lab work and not necessarily clinic stuff

  6. Love working for company, but it's hard to get out of certain positions.

    The benefits are great! Can't beat it.

    Cons

    I think in some departments management can be hard to deal with. I would have loved a transfer.

    Pros

    Medical Insurance is free, dental and vision are dirt cheap. Research facilities are top notch.

    Cons

    Some of the research infrastructure is archaic and run by people who should have retired long ago. Research protocols are entered and edited using Lotus Notes - unbelievable.

    Pros

    The office culture was great, flexibility in work hours, benefits and overall atmosphere were great. Facilities provided within the campus are great, and convenient location.

    Cons

    Nothing really that I can think off the top of my head. The training videos were somewhat annoying, and not really relevant to my work itself.

  10. excellent place to work, great people and hours

    Pros

    The pay is good and the hours are regular. My supervisor and co-workers are competent. The culture is to put patients first.

    Cons

    Parking; high cost of parking in the medical center; lack of flexibility in hours worked; rigid work schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more flexibility in schedule where appropriate and practical.
