    Pros

    Many staff have been at SRI for decades. Extremely unusual for Silicon Valley. People are very nice to work with. Not a lot of slick glam hype, nor young kids thinking they know everything. So much youth hubris in the Valley.

    A unique culture.

    Cons

    Bennies, esp. time off, and perks don't fit with Silicon Valley. However, this organization seems to be mainly a military contractor. So, I cannot evaluate similarities with that culture.
