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

Pros

Very exciting projects, relaxed atmosphere, good people, decent work-life balance. The company has high ethics and values and it shows in much of the work it does. University-like atmosphere.

Cons

Some of the buildings are old, some processes/ systems could be more up-to-date, people stuff should be as innovative as the products - Sometimes I feel we are not pushing ourselves hard enough.

Advice to Management

Trust your team, drive them to take more risks; become less reliant on Government projects (co. is already moving in that direction)

    I worked at SRI International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    lots of flexibility; you can do just about anything as long as you can find a way to pay for it
    not restrictions for collaboration opportunities

    Cons

    day-to-day experience very dependent on group; no evident attempt to weed out bad group leaders as long as they bring in research money
