Progressive Science, Great People, Not free of typical academia drawbacks

Research Technician (Former Employee) Ithaca, NY (US)

Pros-Small town feel of Ithaca
-Fantastic science, cutting edge, opportunity to be involved in interesting work
-Great benefits and wellness programs
-Employee Degree Program or Employee Classes

Cons-Pay can be bleak, pay raises minimal
-Parking is difficult and costly, for those who don't live close enough to walk to work (bus route is fairly useful though)
-Winters are long
-Environment can be very stressful and competitive

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider sliding scale parking based on employees salary! The bus route isn't always feasible depending on your work schedule.
