      Pros

      Physicians, nurses, mental health and other supportive care professionals all profoundly committed to providing the best comprehensive biopsychosocial care in the world. The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated the mutual respect and unwavering support leadership and colleagues have for each other. The compassion, courage and Grace Under Fire of the staff brought out the best in each other. It is an honor to be part of the team!

      Cons

      High expectations for teamwork, commitment, compassion and honesty that may not be a good fit for some.

      Disrespect, No work life balance, and Questionable work practices

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Marginally decent benefits (only really good if you're around 3+ years) - Lots of on the job experience

      Cons

      - Many managers still lingering due to being a mid-tier management position causing discord amongst the staff - Disrespectful PIs who demean and belittle staff members - Management DOES NOT care for the safety and well being of others they oversee - Upper Management is severely disconnected from the actual reality of the institute. - Not much room for career advancement and most management wont ever push for you to grow unless it exclusively benefits them. - Work from home allows poor management to thrive with some avoiding vaccinations to avoid coming into work

      Get through your training and move on

      Jun 6, 2021 - Postdoctoral Fellow Research in Duarte, CA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Opportunities are numerous for basics scientists, not so much for other disciplines.

      Cons

      You have to fight for everything you want and postdoctoral fellows are at the bottom of the academic ladder. There’s are over 200 postdoctoral fellows and only 1 full time staff member. Not wet training program is you’re not apart of a T32 or another fellowship mechanism. Again, not much support outside of basic science discipline.
