New Opportunity, Start-up feel in an Established Company
Research Scientist (Current Employee), Cambridge, MA – March 25, 2015
Pros: Good Salary
Cons: Bad Management, Lack of Communication
Aramco has recently opened an R&D center at 400 Tech Square - and while their vision was great, it seems to have been a disaster in the ability to follow through with the promises.
The R&D centers are now plagued with uncertainty and mismanagement - and this is affecting how research can be done. There are too many restrictions and lack of communication. Its like going to a black hole everyday.
