    I have been working at Schepens Eye Research Institute full-time

    Pros

    The people are fantastic, everyone is so sweet, and there are happy hours once a month on Fridays. The work is pretty easy.

    Cons

    Underpaid, no one else does their job so you have to wait weeks for anything to get done. Benefits suck now that Mass Eye and Ear has "merged" with us. Little to no growth potential.

    I worked at Schepens Eye Research Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good flexible hours. No micro managing most of the time. Easy to learn new things.

    Cons

    Work politics is rampant. People like to push their weight around. No advancement opportunities really. It's a research place which means if there are no funds there will be no raises. PI's usually have big egos and can resort to bullying. Work gets tedious and boring.

    Sometime, the politics can get pretty annoying, especially since it's getting takeover by MEEI.

    I worked at Schepens Eye Research Institute as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible and just focus on the research.
    The research program is interesting

    Cons

    Because it is a research institute, Salary is below the marketing
    But if a student, that will be fine

    Advice to Management

    the material is not managed good enough. Some time you can't found the material. I think this should be improved.

    The training I received at Schepens for 5 years was instrumental in developing me as a scientist. This was a hugely positive experience and would recommend this to any young scientist eager to learn.

    Cons

    There are no cons of note from my time at SERi.
