    Good place for research, and learning.

    Research Scholar (Current Employee)
    Mumbai (India)

    ProsSome of the best research facilities to be found in India are here. Exciting atmosphere, and lot of exposure to the research going on in various fields internationally.

    ConsStudents have to choose their departments when they are interviewed for selection! TIFR sometimes looses good students because of this rule...

    beautiful campus, work culture and beautiful people.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIt is just by the side of Arabian sea. The sea breeze is very refreshing. Work culture is very good. There is one badminton court, gym facility and such kind of entertaining things. It's a really nice place.

    ConsIn rainy season it rains continuously in Mumbai, so it become monotonus. I don't liked that. Additionally for me it is away from my home and the I don't like sea fishes served in the canteen here.

    Advice to Senior Managementtry some bengali foods.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Awesome

    Research Intern (Current Employee)
    Mumbai (India)

    ProsGreat research atmosphere and situated at a very posh location lie Navy Nagar, Colaba in Mumbai. The view of the sea from TIFR is probably the best in the entire Mumbai city. The professors here are not strict about work timings and schedule instead, they are very relaxed.

    ConsFor people travelling from far off places to work at TIFR, travelling by locals becomes a real pain and then again from the station it isnt very close so you have to take a bus or a cab to reach the place. Buses are still affordable on a daily basis but cabs become very expensive.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
