"I am always happy with what I am doing, and I hate that we do not have enough work to do for the last couple of years at Pharmacore."
"There was not new things or new ideas. You were always running same experiment daily."
"I love to combine research with practical applications. The most enjoyable part is to see your work being useful for society. I am excited to work with so many other research students and professors all the time. At times you might feel low but I guess that happens with every job. You need to pick yourself up and get going."
"I am a critical thinker and I love the challenge I face every morning to bring new ideas to the table to deal with many of our scientific problems."
"There is nothing to hate about being a research scientist."
"I like this position, but there was no career growth."
"I love free discussion and quick realization of new ideas."
"I love the freedom to work on what interests me in the company of very smart people, without overpaid MBAs constantly peering over my shoulder. I hate the frequent lack of focus, the petty academic politics, the constant worries over funding, and the lack of career mobility."
"I love being a research scientust that I am exploring my academic knowledge in the right direction and the outcome is very impressive. The bad thing about being a scientist is that I have very limited salary and promotion rate is very slow in the current company."
"I love its ability to set a person ultimately free to flow what (s)he has in mind. I dislike to play redundant politics."
"The work is great--fun, challenging, exciting. But it doesn't pay very well."
"I loved doing research. Nothing feels quite as good as coming up with publishable results that no one has ever generated before."
