      I have been working at Max-Planck-Gesellschaft full-time

      Pros

      very relaxed atmosphere, sparkling water machine, work on whatever you want to, no fixed hours, acceptable coffee machine, lively scientific environment.

      Cons

      the pay is atrocious, but this is standard in academia at the postdoc level. it is very far from berlin and nobody wants to live in Golm. foreigners get screwed on benefits and employments status.

      Advice to Management

      treat foreign employees like german employees; that is, allow them to join statutory insurance plans, and allow them to be eligible for unemployment and kindergeld.
