Pros

Pretty good benefits: Health, vision, and dental; 401K; insurance; company credit plan; suitable PTO and sick leave. Most of the managers are willing to work with you on flexible schedules and it's usually pretty easy to get time off at the last minute. Get the whole week between Christmas and New Years off because the institute is closed.

Cons

The management isn't always in touch with the low men on the totum pole. Most of the research groups are very clicky and there is a big problem with gossip. On more than one occasion I was in a group that resorted to tattle telling to the boss to get someone in trouble and the group leaders didn't take the time to find out what was going on.

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible hours. Loved the fact that they have different shifts and you are able to go on different projects if needed.

    Cons

    shifts have the ability to over lap. There are no set hours which can be a good or bad thing. Lab is 24 hrs, which means it is open all HOLIDAYS.

    Advice to Management

    I honestly think Midwest Research Institute is going in the right direction. To truly operate at full steam they definitely need more workers.
