    I have been working at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Extremely good funding. Decent work ethics. Talented PI's. Good exposure to scientists and thinking from around the world. Opportunities to collaborate with scientists from the world over.

    Cons

    Not all PI's are great. As it is research you really need to love what you do or else you'll get bored or exhausted after a while.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There can be more science and less of other stuff.

    Some 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.

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

    I have been working at Tata Institute of Fundamental Research for more than a year

    Pros

    It 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.

    Cons

    In 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 ManagementAdvice

    try some bengali foods.
