    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Marine Environmental Sciences Consortion full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Modest resources fuel an abundance of academic and outreach endeavors. Its community is largely composed of wholesome individuals

    Cons

    The community is largely transient, and the long/odd hours characteristic of the nature of the field & lab work limit social dynamics. There exists a heavy drinking culture.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the trees as you build the forest. I'm concerned for the extreme focus on image at the expense of a real experience.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Marine Environmental Sciences Consortion full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You can make some good connections and learn a lot about research in marine biology

    Cons

    Professors treat you like secretaries and you don't get paid well at all. No benefits and depending on grant money you might only be in your position a year.

    Advice to Management

    Ask lab techs about their supervisors before giving them tenure.
