    I worked at Monell Chemical Senses Center

    Pros

    Had to leave for personal reasons. I really enjoyed my time here. Management was great. Its a small, tight-knit community of bright people. Yes, compensation isn't that great, but it's non profit, so what can you expect? I would highly recommend this as a great employer to anyone.

    Instead of a christmas bonus, everyone gets week and a half off!

    Cons

    hard commute if you live far outside the city. its located near upenn's campus.
