World Class Research; Smart People; Great Lectures (including frequent Nobel prizes); great infrostructures, labs, enviroment, location

Depends on the research advisor. Can be great and give a lot of freedom, or can require insane work hours.

    I worked at The Scripps Research Institute full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and I had a chance to publish a lot of papers through collaborations with scientists around the world. Great networking opportunities with industry and UCSD.

    Cons

    A little bit higher pay would be nice but that is how science jobs are.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for disgruntled employees. We had a case of two of them ripping the lab environment apart. Before they cam everyone got along.

    I worked at The Scripps Research Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I like the fact that this is a non-profit institution. I honestly didn't know workplaces like this existed. They offered a great salary, benefits, and a respectful workplace. As icing on the cake you have the most beautiful views of the ocean and the Torrey Pines golf course right in the back. During a break or after work you could easily go out for a quick run to the beach or the hiking trails of Torrey Pines State park.

    Cons

    The party had to end eventually like most places after 2008, but it was great while it lasted. Management was forced to balance the budget, and by doing so it became political in deciding who would get laid off, and which department would get more funding.

    Advice to Management

    Cut from the top.
