I have been working at SRI International full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Lots of smart people, respectful culture, generally interesting work. Government contract work is not as sensitive to economic downturns as commercial work.

Cons

Government margins are defined and quite thin.

Strategy is reactive and scattered, driven by whoever needs our services at any given time.

Advice to Management

Get a vision to dominate a market and go after it.

    I have been working at SRI International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Lots of research projects. Freedom to create your own research projects and working on it. Laid back and easy environment. You most likely get your own private office. It offers the benefits of a company in an academia-like environment.

    Cons

    It can feel a bit boring at times. There is not a lot of fun activities on the campus. The average age range is high.
