    Pros

    Working in an academic environment with nice and smart researchers and PhD students as well as helpful administration team. Interesting research topics and advanced methods. Easy to collaborate with other important scientific institutes nearby to carry out results.

    Cons

    Not so well-paid if comparing to similar post doctoral positions in the U.S., especially for living in the Paris region where the cost of life is high.

    Advice to Management

    International employees can get immediate help in VISA or residence permit application, accommodation and language learning. As a non-permanent member, I have no idea on the general management but it seems to be better than average French management in academic institutes.

    I worked at Inria full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Great freedom in choosing the subjects you want to work on.
    - Very stimulating technical discussion with co-workers who are mostly very knowledgeable.
    - Good infrastructure and choice of hardware.

    Cons

    - Some of the researchers (a minority luckily) tend to look down on research engineers even if they have similar qualifications (PhD).
    - The freedom everyone has in the choice of the subject they work on may induce slow progression as no strong focus emerges.

    Advice to Management

    Hard to say as the situation varies from team to team (and I experienced multiple ones). The main point of action should be to reinforce the focus of some projects, but this is already done in some fashion.
