    Pros

    The Academy is filled with some of the smartest, most collaborative, fascinating scientists and professionals, who are doing incredible work on a global scale. I have never had a better group of colleagues.

    The work is fast-paced and extremely varied - it covers all areas of science and the Academy partners with organizations all over the world. You will never be bored or lack for something to do. You will meet extraordinary people and find yourself in new situations constantly.

    Work-life balance and benefits are very good and I always found people, particularly HR, ready to help if you asked. This is a place for confident, flexible, self-starters with high goals and ambitions. You will build your resume fast at the Academy.

    Cons

    If you are looking for a 9-5 job where your whole day is laid out for you and you know exactly what you will be doing, the Academy is not the place for you. If you expect to handed a budget to spend and lots of admin help and a set of tasks to accomplish, you won't be happy here. You will need to be flexible and willing to take on tasks that you may not have experience with. The fast pace can be stressful, but if you can do it, the rewards are great.

    Advice to Management

    A clearer career path and promotion opportunities would be helpful in retaining staff. Try not to micromanage the senior staff.
