Pros

Normally a good salary can be obtained. I feel that a good work-private time can be achieved. A fair ammount of freedom can at times be given.

Cons

Everything is ruled by one director. Evebn if an attempt is beeing made to solve some difficult issues this attempt, and with it several years of research can be thrown away. Teh people in charge do not look upon the data in a scientific, neutral way. Instead they are bias and take into acount the data that supports their theory.
The senior management tend to be a little bit too full of themselves.
Getting fired.

Advice to Management

A more modest aproach. Actually sselling or partnering project before moving them into phase 2. One person should not be in charge for the research.
