    I worked at Sanford Research/USD as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great and friendly coworkers. Revolutionary equipment and resources. Plenty of space to grow and expand. Great food in the

    Cons

    Some inconvenient rules and regulations that can make it to do simply things like share data. Not much else really.

    Advice to Management

    The policy prohibiting research staff from eating up front by the cafeteria is a little ridiculous. Keep up the great work with keeping equipment up and running.

    Pros

    Wonderful staff and co-workers that care about you as an individual as well as are open to communication and collaboration. Sanford research provides a great learning environment that is constantly changing and progressing as science advances. Provides opportunities to work individually but also to develop strengths and skills of a great team-member. Also has great flexibility and has a relatively non-stressful work atmosphere.

    Does not have the best opportunities for advancement within the company. Can be slightly segregated under the large Sanford umbrella.
