    Pros

    Flexible hours, coworkers enjoy helping and training new employees, frequent team building and celebration events, weekly one on one time with supervisor.

    Expections are impratical, required to clock in and out and overtime is not feasible from grant funding, scientists are poor communicators to their employees, a lot of politicizing among administrators and PIs.
