    Approves of CEO

    I worked at J Craig Venter Institute for less than a year

    Pros

    Talking about science is the easiest thing here, and there are lots of leading minds coming out with great publications. People were always willing to teach me a new technique to expand my repertoire.

    Cons

    The research projects/divisions are not very connected and hence there is a lack of overall direction with each lab sort of looking out for themselves and their own funding.
