    Great people but you must leave science and move into management if you want to succeed.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. The food served in the canteen is great. Everyone is generally very friendly. Only on rare occasions do you have to work beyond 40 hours a week.

    Cons

    There are few opportunities to stay in science if you want to get ahead. Emphasis is placed on going to meetings, and more importantly documenting that you have been going to meetings. Scientists play second fiddle to management and pay rises for the scientists are very low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut back on the endless numbers of managers with random job titles and start doing the science again.
