    I worked at National Centre for Biological Sciences as an intern

    Pros

    World class research exposure in India, great (and cheap :) food, professors are top notch, and the students are very cool.

    Cons

    The main drawback I felt was the length of time you will invest in case you are a PhD student. Don't expect to graduate quickly (we're looking at ~ 7 years)

    I worked at National Centre for Biological Sciences

    Pros

    Excellent relations with the scientific community.
    Innovative thinking encouraged and supported.
    Development of research skills is paramount and is encouraged here.

    Cons

    Management should improve the efficiency of the projects undertaken.
    Sometimes a lax attitude towards work which undermines the morale of the workforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A closer relationship with employees to understand the internal working of the labs would be more suitable to accelerate work undertaken.
