    I have been working at Fraunhofer Gesellschaft full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    There are a number of brilliant, hardworking people working at the Center for Molecular Biotechnology in Newark, Delaware. The science is interesting, and the benefits are pretty darn good. Acting executive director has over ten years in with the center and is invested in long term success. If you are reading this, you have probably seen (or will see) the negative reviews. They are an honest reflection of where things...

    Cons

    We are recovering from a decade of mismanagement and negativity. We lost a lot of good (and some bad) people to layoffs followed by "sinking ship" style attrition. This means a lot of work. It also means that a number of employees are suddenly thrust into higher level responsibilities. However, we have a new director who is incredibly dedicated to turning the place around.

    Advice to Management

    To CMB management: keep up the good work and put some active effort into changing the culture and keeping the employees informed. To Fraunhofer USA and Germany: Back CMB. You have a solid leader at the helm and a lot of good people supporting the research efforts. You want to keep those people.

    The technical work being conducted is top-notch and very important for a sustainable future. The technical challenges and quality of research personnel are outstanding and offer a rare career opportunity to grow and develop.

    The hours are long but the dedication, high level of comraderie and stong sense of 'team spirit' make this a very satisfying place to work.

    Thank you for working tirelessly to make our Center both a great place to work and where important technology is developed.
