    Pros

    Four years funding to study both a broad and in Portugal.

    Cons

    The starting process can take a while. So we may have to wait 3 months after until they start to pay your scholarship. But after that there are no more late payments.

    Very bad work/Life balance. Sometimes have to work in subjects not related to the PhD just because the professor responsible requires it (ex: review papers in is name)

    Flexible work schedule in most situations.

    Grant values haven't been updated in years, due to bureaucracy, a few months may pass between the start of the grant and receiving the first payment.

    I have been working at Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The employee can work with total flexibility.

    The salary is not increased. There is no technical support.

    I would advise to create a panel which could accompany the progress of the work.
