Ik heb een voltijdbaan gehad bij The Institute of Cancer Research (Langer dan een jaar)
Very good salary and great benefit (considering that you are not requested to do any job); decent facilities, sound reputation (as an heritage from the past, where perhaps ICR was actually good) that will improve visibility of your CV.
Extremely slow pace of work to the point of being very boring. The research approach is quite obsolete, clearly lagging behind the private sector. Team leaders are often clueless and arrogant. Yelling and non-professional behavior is common, as it is in all academic environments (so not surprising). No possibility for career growth, apart for Team leaders (as usual in all academic environments). I guess that the ICR used to be a very good Research Institute, perhaps till 10-15 years ago... now it is just a slow, obsolete non-functioning institute that keeps celebrating aged discoveries...
