    Pros

    You are doing great science and get the chance to work at one of the premiere research institutions in the world. There is no place like it.

    Cons

    Pay isn't great, as is the case in academics. Research can be frustrating and unless you have the patience and fortitude to go through with it, this isn't the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    I think Broad is fantastic and has fantastic and understanding management. I think that maybe a gym membership could be included in benefits, so that it encourages scientists to keep fit.

    Pros

    Working with top-level researchers, open collaborative environment, very exciting projects, many large-scale projects that not many academic/research entities can afford, high-profile publications, job stability, good benefits, 'just get the job done' attitude - working flexible hours or working from home is usually fine (there is a reasonable limit to everything though!). Academia-like environment without academic rivalry and backstabbing. Very competent and very approachable management.

    Cons

    Unclear career path for staff researchers, the organizational structure is quite flat. With many groups/labs/operational entities involved into large-scale projects, lack of proper communication can be felt sometimes that leaves projects falling through.

    Advice to Management

    Better oversee communications between groups/platforms within and between projects
