"A very unhappy place to work. No real sense of purpose or commitment to excellence. If you want a job where you can kind of just coast and where nobody wants you to be passionate about anything other than how soon the weekend will arrive, this might suit you. But it is not a serious place to have a serious career. Life is too short to work for organizations like this."

"The only problem here is that there are very few permanent positions, lots of temporal 1-2 year postdocs, so it is difficult to start a career. Also, if you do not have a car you cannot get here easily."
