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

Pros

SRI has a great history of innovation and this culture fuels its forward progress. It is one of the few institutions in Silicon Valley that has excellent integrity and ethics. If you can contribute to the success of your projects, you'll have a rewarding career here.

Cons

SRI, like all research-oriented contractors, is subject to the influence of the economy. When the government and private businesses are not investing in research, it can be a challenge to find a projects to which you can contribute.

    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.
