    Good science, state-of-the-art facility, good vision.

    Cons

    no clear career path for staff scientists.

    think more of what Broad has to offer to the employee, not what employees can offer to Broad. It needs to be mutually beneficial for a long term commitment.

    I have been working at The Broad Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great scientific research environment where everyone with a motivation for improving human health and life, can contribute. Great work-life balance philosophy where quality of work is considered and not hours put in. Its an open environment where one can have a voice if one is willing to speak up.

    Cons

    I feel in the Software Engineering side of things the salary is average and there aren't many initiatives to attract or retain good talent.
