    Flexible, academic environment with lots of room for impact.

    I worked at The Mind Research Network part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Exciting and innovative place to work. Great for students.

    Cons

    Management is under qualified. The company is more concerned about minimizing costs and not about collecting accurate data.

  3. "Comfortable situation"

    • Work/Life Balance
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at The Mind Research Network full-time

    Pros

    Relatively relaxed environment, nice offices, friendly/noncompetitive coworkers, principal investigators are major players in their fields. It's a fairly small place so there isn't as much bureaucracy. If you're a student you have much more independence than you would at other places, and will generally be treated as someone who can contribute.

    Albuquerque is affordable and has great weather, with a nice arts culture.

    Cons

    Working at MRN ends up being a dead end job for a lot of people. There are non-tenured research scientists (with a PhD or masters) who have worked there in a non-leadership position for over 10 years. There are some people who later get good jobs in industry too though. If you are ambitious and looking to lead, there may be more fast-paced places for you. If you want to focus on a family or don't have major plans for promotion, MRN is perfect. There isn't a whole lot of coworker interaction or a company culture, although there are some holiday events and etc.


  4. "Postdoctoral"

    Cons

    The weather is dry. Need some time to get used to.

    I worked at The Mind Research Network full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people that encourage each other.
    Very flexible hours/location.
    Interesting work.
    Creativity and independence is encouraged.

    Cons

    There are few non-neuroscience industry experts to guide junior employees that are not researchers. As mentioned above, you do have full creative freedom to make decisions and learn from them yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, but reconsider how much you're willing to invest in the talent needed to innovate.
