    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at NIH full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay (for a postdoc). Health insurance is great, although there are no other benefits. Well funded lab, energetic co-workers, lots of opportunities to collaborate with other labs and interact with other PIs.

    Cons

    Typical government red-tape and restrictions- lots of paper work and regulations for travel, ordering supplies. Lots of paperwork for any collaborations outside of NIH. However, the support staff is very helpful with making sure everything is in order.

    Advice to Management

    Full benefits for post-docs (including higher pay) would be great!


  2. "Smart people, good flexibility"

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at NIH full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    appreciate knowledge, research, science, and ability
    most departments pretty well run
    well funded
    government benefits but greater emphasis on merit
    flexible work environment
    student loan payoff

    Cons

    still part of government so can be slow and bureaucratic, depending on your office
    sometimes stuck with older technology
    frequent reorganizations waste a lot of time (endemic to places run by political appointees)

    Advice to Management

    Stop re-orging every 3 years. Otherwise, once we get to do our regular work, it's a great place and we like it.
