    Stimulating research, cutting edge brain scanning technology, good benefits for students, nice facility.

    Cons

    Lack of staff, incredibly high work load, little to no training given, no opportunities for advancement, very clique-y environment, unhelpful staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and properly train more staff, take employees suggestions into consideration, treat all employees with same amount of respect, and cultivate a supportive and encouraging workplace environment.

    Good opportunities, but no free ride

    Former Employee - Research Scientist in Albuquerque, NM

    I worked at The Mind Research Network full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Island of great equipment and expertise - no other similar opportunities in the geographic area for access to state of the art imaging equipment and such strong support for using it effectively.
    Other researchers are generally open, curious, and high quality.
    The quality of the students available as RAs can be higher than might be expected since the field of imaging is attractive and you tend to have access to particularly strong students. That said, they still frequently need considerable training for anything technical.

    Cons

    Very little cushion to carry any junior researchers who have a lean year or need start-up support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since I was at MRN the senior management has moved on, so I can't offer timely suggestions.

    I worked at The Mind Research Network

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules
    Very smart folks in thier field
    Nice facility

    Cons

    Members of senior management are under qualified for certain administrative positions. Too many PhD's are in it for themselves rather than the betterment of the organization. HR cannot keep competent staff on board.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize what you have, what you're missing and do something about both.
