    I worked at Deutsches Krebsforschungszentrum

    Pros

    The environment is very supportive, there is a lot of courses for free and lectures with invited speakers. Nice cafeteria.

    Cons

    The administration is extremely slow and one has to ask at least few times before getting a reply. The hierarchy is very strict and stagnant and it's really hard to change the position.
