    Pros

    Not too demanding, pretty laid back, easy-going. The research is a little slow, not to many young people are interested in Research like it was 10-15 yrs ago.

    Cons

    Not a lot of work to go around, no room for advancement,.

    Pros

    Stable and friendly, with large opportunities for self-development. Good fringe benefits

    Cons

    Lower wages than in the private sector, aggravated by an increment stop for an indefinite length of time.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making assessments only from a financial perspective. More other factors influence the dynamics of a company.

    Pros

    This a state facility that supports basic scientific research. Great scientific colleagues makes for stimulating atmosphere and many opportunities for collaboration on research.

    Cons

    As a state facility that supports scientific research there is no functionality between the administrative staff and research staff. Very inefficient, as one might expect for a state facility. Spent hundreds of hours dealing with administrative hiccups that would be dealt with properly in an eye-blink at any for-profit organization.

    Advice to Management

    People need to get their paychecks on time. Researchers need their NIH grants administered properly. The state should not pay administrative personel (union) to do essentially nothing.

    Pros

    -There is always a very academic environment where you can learn new things.

    Cons

    It depends on the department you work for.
    There is no union
    Management is not aware or doesn't keep good control of the way Principal Investigators handle/treat their teams.

    Advice to Management

    Would really like more support for Human Resources, they are not aware of many things that happen there.


  10. Lots of hours, lots of work with little compensation
