    Pros

    Everyone working at Inria, from researchers to administrative staff, are extremely helpful and nice. Most researchers work on serious research projects, but also respect your personal and social life. You will get more than 40 working days of vacation every year, which helps during stressful periods of PhD. PhD salaries are good enough to live rather comfortably (might not be that way in Paris).

    Cons

    PhD contract are only for 3 years, which might be short for some people.

    I worked at Inria full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment with exceptionally smart individuals supporting creative/different thinking.
    Very good Work/Life balance (if you can afford a life with that pay).
    Social views on employment (meaning that you will be treated as a human beeing). You can take your kid to school every morning without worrying about being late.
    Flexible working hours if you meet your objectives.
    No extra hours unless you really want too or you've reached "expert level" in research (meaning that you have nothing else to do except working).

    Cons

    Low wages considering that you can't work here unless you are extremely well educated (PhD level).
    Very political.
    Most of the people with a permanent position remain until retirement or until they die of loneliness.

    Advice to Management

    The state manages this research center by cutting its buget at every ocasion.
