    I have been working at Palo Alto Veterans Institute for Research full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The personnel is very friendly and responsive if you need anything. They help you with as much as they can when it comes to managing grant funds. It seems like they have project management and fund distribution down so well that researchers feel spoiled, especially if they have to deal with a different agency managing their grants. PAVIR is a great place to work.

    Cons

    If you are paying for benefits for you and your spouse it can be a bit pricey, but the coverage is great. Salaries are competitive, but for the Bay Area they are on the lower end of the spectrum.
