    I have been working at University Pierre & Marie Curie as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Many projects with different themes. "Multidisplinarity" . Most of the international visitors are impressed with the breadth of projects in the lab -There are several world robotics stars working in the lab. -Cultural diversity -In the center of Paris -Great work/life balance

    Cons

    Most of the Inconveniences are blamed on the french culture and the downside of the location. -French Bureaucracy -Professors seem to incline more to teaching than doing research, as it is their sole obligation by contract i suppose. -Difficulty to expand as we are in the center of paris

    Advice to Management

    The new director Prof. Raja Chatilla is doing an outstanding effort on the internal reforms for the lab. I hope that there will be more attention in the future to concentrate on international recognition.

    Pros

    Endroit où il fait bon travailler, collègues compétents, ambiance amicale, ordinateurs fiables, domaines de recherche intéressants, travail stimulant, super emplacement dans Paris

    Great place to work, competent colleagues, friendly environment, efficient computer cluster, interesting research areas, challenging work, great location in Paris.

    Cons

    Le principal inconvénient lorsque l’on est stagiaire chez ISIR est la mauvaise qualité des ordinateurs. Le second est le salaire très bas (mais cela ne dépend pas d’ISIR).

    The biggest downside of working at ISIR as an intern is the low quality of computer equipment. The second is the very low salary. (not dependant on ISIR)

    Advice to Management

    Améliorez votre parc informatique et permettez le télé-travail. De même, je ne comprends pas pourquoi la communication sur le Net est autant bridée (Skype est interdit, par exemple).

    Improve computer equipment and allow working from home. Also, I personally don't understand why the network is so restricted (e.g. Skype is forbidden...)
