    I have been working at The Scripps Research Institute full-time

    Pros

    Great view and the people are all very interested in research. The community is very supportive and extremely high level. The bar for quality research is high.

    Cons

    The management can get in the way of doing research, frequently for political reasons. This can become particularly obstructive when dealing with space issues.

    Advice to Management

    I think if the management were better able to facilitate individuals research without requiring huge commitments for personally funding your research, there would be greater productivity.

    Interview

    Very informal as it is a lab.
    They test to see capabilities and understanding of data entry and lab protocol. They asked what my goals were after graduating. They asked about my interests.
