Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

People are friendly, but they're all miserable in their own ways. P.I.s are demanding and you'll see people staying out late. The staff is very friendly, but don't expect to do much talking when your nose will stuck to your bench.

Cons

Lots of hours, lots of hard work, lots of lifting. Expect to be overworked and not paid well. Motivation easily disappears as you realize that you won't be getting anymore $$ anytime soon.
