    Pros

    Devices at Wyss Institute are amazing, researching here you get insight to latest bioinspired technology and techniques. This institute is hard working, efficient and is always producing state of the art technology that will be beneficial in various areas of infrastructure and medical technology. If you are interested in becoming a biomedical or biochemical engineer this is definitely the place for you and will give you great ideas in developing your own technology and devices.

    Cons

    Scientist was not easy to work with, didn't learn as much as I thought I would. I had to teach myself about the device I was working on because the scientist was cocky, lazy and ignorant to my opinion and understanding of the device I was working on which was still pretty good. Lab settings and staff vary everywhere even at one of the world's top research institutes, maybe this was just my experience with the scientist I worked with.
