I have been working at Buck Institute full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great people, great science, different cultures, flexible hours, science related and interpersonal activities. A great place to grow in professional way as in a personal way.

Cons

The Institute in located far away from the big city, San Francisco, which limits your social life. The institute lacks dorms. You need to find your own living arrangement even if coming for short periods of time.

    I worked at Buck Institute full-time

    Pros

    -A fun place to work with vibrant and interesting people
    -Opportunity to collaborate with people having a variety of backgrounds
    -Dynamic environment to practice new research ideas

    Cons

    -Could use tighter organization from central management.
    -Need to develop a more structured setting for full time technical staff to prevent uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    I think if the full time staff were more stably funded by the institution then the over all continuity would improve institutional efficiency.
