    Pros

    smart people and a lot of opportunity to share ideas with researchers internationally.

    If you work as a research associate, expect similar pay as a doctoral student, but it gets you enough to live well there.

    Pros

    Flexibility in working. Can interact with many other friendly people from other countries( little politics). Compensation is fair.

    Cons

    Project based hence can have conflict in who to listen to. Your direct boss and the project leader can have very conflicting views. Hours can be be long if need to finish experiment or write paper. Very far away if living in east.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Important to only have one person to listen to. More proper training can help in better results

    Pros

    work life balance
    fixed working hours
    good for people looking for stable job

    Cons

    near zero salary
    no career prospect
    management who are mainly consist of faculty members are more concern of their own KPIs (H-index) than caring for the students or staffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop using bell-shape curve to rank your employees, it is not productive and it causes low moral amoung staffs.

    Pros

    standard working hours, no OT.

    Cons

    Salary is low compare to outside company. No career progression at all. Even you have got a degree cert but still holding the position under lots of older colleagues who has only diploma and wait for their retirement life. Because every year HR only give 2 quotas for a big department which has 80+ peoples.
