    I have been working at CERN full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    CERN has an amazing work environment. You are constantly in the cutting-edge of technology, supporting or actively researching in the fields of IT, electronics, engineering and of course physics. You are surrounded by bright people, with hundreds of opportunities for networking. Overall a great organization to work for!

    Cons

    Some positions are not well supervised (reasonable if you consider the hundreds of positions in the dozens of groups), and extra work is not always valued.

    Many thanks for your review. It’s delightful to read that you have found CERN a great place to work. It is unfortunate however that you felt the rewards were few as apart from a fixed stipend for the duration of their contract, CERN Fellows benefit from an array of training opportunities, ...
