    I have been working at NCIRE full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful people, HR, supervisor and co-workers.
    Stunningly beautiful work location by the ocean.
    Great shuttle service for employees.

    Cons

    Northwest most corner of San Francisco, so commute for non-SFO residents a bit time consuming.

    I worked at NCIRE full-time

    Pros

    The work that NCIRE researchers are doing is world class. I always felt proud to be working there. The benefits are also tremendous and help to mitigate/make up for the low to average salaries.

    Cons

    There is NO way to advance. To move up in your job or field, you need to leave NCIRE and find another job.

    Advice to Management

    Moe staff meetings. Open lines of communication. Stick with the core business. More recognition events.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Retirement matching and increased PTO after time off. Very reasonable HR in general and lovely to work with. The experience will depend almost entirely on the PI and team you work with, not NCIRE itself.

    Cons

    Not easy to negotiate higher wages as some are linked to federal.

    Advice to Management

    More staff appreciation events
