    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Nathan Kline Institute full-time

    Pros

    Work stability if you get a new york state job. As a NYS employee you can get into a pension plan and be part of a union.

    Cons

    Very hard to reach if you do not have a car. Very limited public transportation. Very heavy bureaucracy.

    Advice to Management

    Increase opportunities for career advancement.

    I have been working at Nathan Kline Institute full-time

    Pros

    Benefits, some physicians trying to do good research. Definitely a closed society.
    Good place to get basic experience for those just out of school.
    Place has history, could be something great in the community.

    Cons

    Upper Management let "manager" come in and scour years of work at the IRB. She fired everyone and she continues to be unpleasant, bossy and nasty. She is running over all the old men.
    Not many opportunities for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Provide food service, water and coffee to your staff.

    I have been working at Nathan Kline Institute full-time

    Pros

    The benefits package is incredible: excellent healthcare, accrued vacation and sick time in addition to personal time. Executive management is finally making strides to increase visibility.

    Cons

    Departments that should be complementary to one another act independently, which does not contribute to a unified corporate culture. Partial dependence on state funding/approval causes purchasing delays, which can be very frustrating. Difficult to get a raise due to reliance on grants. Depending on your supervisor, you can be extremely micromanaged.

    Advice to Management

    If you have postdocs, encourage them to apply for funding and help expedite their publications instead of spending too much time correcting their writing.

    I have been working at Nathan Kline Institute full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of vacation, sick leave, flexible hours. The benefits are good. Lots of room to work independently in a casual environment. Work is interesting and co workers are good.

    Cons

    Depending on the group can experience a lot of micro-managing. Most employees are dependent on government grants so long term employment is not optimal. Since it is supported by grants raises are non-existent.
