    I have been working at CERN for more than a year

    Pros

    The work environment is awesome, well organized.

    Cons

    It finds place in the most expensive area I have ever lived in. Prices for services are quite high.

    I worked at CERN for more than a year

    Pros

    Really great people, interesting work, real responsibility, and amazing location. One of the best ways to spend a summer

    Cons

    Work projects really depend on which team you get. Some people got interesting ones, others get boring ones. Also no free food or perks

    I worked at CERN for more than a year

    Pros

    International environment. Although it's an EU organization you still meet people from all over the world; You get to work with very intelligent peers, half of the people at CERN are students in their 20s pursuing higher education; Excellent growing opportunity.

    Cons

    CERN doesn't hired non-EU nationals for staff positions, even for Europeans it's very difficult to land a long-term contract at CERN. Most of the people are on short-term contract (1-3 years). Different groups have minor glitches occasionally.

    Advice to Management

    keep on with the good work

    I have been working at CERN for more than a year

    Pros

    * Of course, you can learn a lot of stuff here * Colleagues are very nice * Working with smart people * International, people from all over the world * Good life work balance

    Cons

    * No software engineering or less team cooperation. Most of time I just do something by yourself.

    Advice to Management

    I suggest team leaders to strengthen teamwork instead of everyone doing their own work.
