    I have been working at SRI International full-time

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere. As long as you are billable and your lab is profitable, you can do whatever kind of work and for almost any client. It's a diverse workforce and there are a lot of eclectic, smart and dedicated researchers to collaborate with.

    Cons

    Senior management is disconnected from rank and file. All they care about is compliance and profitability without understanding what motivates research staff (not money, because it does not pay competitively). Little consultation with staff on policies that affect them.

    Advice to Management

    Remember who is making the money and paying your high salaires. The senior executive on overhead - you are a big cost to a company this size.

    I have been working at SRI International as an intern

    Pros

    Intelligent colleagues but there's not much interest from them towards helping others. Assumption is that everyone comes in, contributes, goes home. No one will really bother you as long as you do your work

    Cons

    Not really any camaraderie, and no real excitement. If you're looking for a place to go where you'll bond with colleagues and live an incredibly exciting life -- this is not the place for you. Could be if you looking for vice versa.

    Advice to Management

    Inspire competition and camaraderie.
