    Pros

    A thriving and motivating public research environment, with emphasis on publishing articles and disseminating knowledge.

    Pros

    I find the experience of working at Inria varies a lot depending on the team you join. If you're interested in working at Inria, I would advise to take a look at the list of projects the team you'd like to join has worked on. Also do some research on the person who's heading the team.

    Pros:
    + Combining research and development
    + You might have the chance to work in either English or French (or both)

    Cons

    + Salaries can be much lower than if you work in the private sector
    + Some teams are heavily research-oriented, and the projects you'd be working on will probably not be very practical (meaning that whatever skills you pick up might not be very relevant or useful to you if you'd like to land a job in the industry later on).

    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.
