    Pros

    Professionalism. People oriented environment. Great benefits. Important mission. Opportunity to work on different roles. Environmentally responsible policies.

    Short term solutions to scientific issues are given more relevance over technically sound resolutions. The quality of its products can improve on the long term by favoring science based proposals. Pay should be better.
