Research Technician, San Francisco, CA - May 18, 2016
A culture of favoritism and nepotism exists in this Institute. There is a clear hierarchy with principle investigators at the top followed by post doc fellows, then graduate students. Research technicians, admin professionals, and other staff are considered dispensable. There is very little professional development and opportunities for advancement for technicians and administrators. If you decide to work at the Gladstone Institutes, learn what you can and move on quickly.
