    a fantastic place for people with passion to science

    MSC Student (Current Employee) Rehovot (Israel)

    ProsThe faculty is world class, the environment is super-friendly, there's a truly scientific environment, there aren't a lot of formal requirements and you can really focus on researching the things that interest you. No tuition for MSc/PhD students and a nice stipend.

    ConsA lot of independent work so you really have to stay motivated and work on your own to succeed (no one will push you). In some areas research areas are quite narrow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore emphasis on gradually mentoring the students into the research world.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    CS Postdoc at WIS

    Postdoctoral (Former Employee) Rehovot (Israel)

    ProsPeople in the department are very friendly, administration has a very positive atmosphere. Cookie breaks every day, beer every week, and a nice stipend in Israeli standards. They were very easygoing about when I start the postdoc and when I end it, and everything was well arranged, that is, when you arrive you have an office and a computer waiting for you, not something standard in Israel.

    ConsRelatively small group. Very little contact with undergraduate students, which is both a blessing and a curse. Very few formal requirements - again a blessing and a curse.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    A top institute, which also really tries to minimize the amount of bureaucracy between the scientist and research.
