Former Employee - PhD Research Intern  in  Yorktown Heights, NY (US)
Former Employee - PhD Research Intern in Yorktown Heights, NY (US)

Pros

Access to a vast range of resources (financial and otherwise) for research, excellent mentoring system for research interns and strong encouragement to be creative. Excellent pay for research interns, excellent benefits (housing) and relocation offered.

Cons

Few work related cons, except that I interend over the winter and no transport was available from housing unlike in the summer. TJ Watson is very isolated and impossible to reach by public transport. Taxis are not expensive though (Typ 15-20$ from TJ Watson to Mt Kisco)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep running the research intern program, and perhaps consider a little closer how to coordinate interns who do not intern during the main summer block

    Current Employee - Program Manager

    Pros

    A number of opportunities to move and learn new skills and capabilities.

    Cons

    No real time to smell the roses, but always always a pressure to produce more and more with less and less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove a level of executives that drag on the business while providing opportunities to others looking for autonomy, not dictatorships.
