    I have been working at Sanger Institute full-time

    Pros

    Great environment to work in. Lots of resources eg. computer farm, IT support, gym/canteen facilities. Great collaborative and relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    Depending on your supervisor, some are very busy and very "hands off". Not around much and can be very last minute.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sanger Institute (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I received the invitation for a Skype interview a week after the application deadline. The group leader and the principal bioinformatician conducted the interview. They were really nice, and we had an enjoyable talk. They mainly described the projects and Sanger Institute, and asked questions on my background and project-related skills.
