    Pros

    This is where you can work and raise a family. Company offers work-life-family flexibility.

    Cons

    The politics of the company is the worst. Most positions are grant funded so you can lose your job if funding does not come in year after year.

    Advice to Management

    Become a real H. R. H.R. listens basically to whoever is the funding manager.

    Pros

    The Hektoen Institute of Medicine is the home of some very high quality scientific work. This is a great employer to have on a resume.

    Cons

    As with every job, there are some negative aspects. I found that, at times, the communication between employees and management was not the greatest.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that middle level management employees are not overwhelmed by work. This affects their ability to communities with lower level employees effectively.
