    Current Employee - Project Administrator in New York, NY

    I have been working at New York State Psychiatric Institute full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    --Research that will help many people
    --Tuition reimbursement
    --Great Grand Rounds
    --Experiences vary by labs
    --Many great researchers working here

    Cons

    --Politically charged research environment
    --State-run facility with poor maintenance and management
    --Many PIs indifferent to research participants
    --Little coordination between labs
    --IT not very supportive
    --Poor email system in place that is deleterious to project management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    RFMH needs some serious help in monitoring the fidelity of technology transfer efforts. More attention needs to be placed on maintaining scientific integrity rather than sealing the deal. Experiences vary greatly by lab. Pay close attention to your particular lab and PI.

    I have been working at New York State Psychiatric Institute full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had a good environment and good people to work with. The data that I worked with was relevant to my interests and I was able to travel to present our findings.

    Cons

    Actually gathering the data was tedious and mind numbing. I was counting neurons all day.
