Innovative enivornment with revolutionary research
Student Associate (Former Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – January 23, 2013
I was blessed to work at SRI as a student associate. Although I only personally work with a Material Scientist, this experience was invaluable. For just an internship, I was given my own computer, my own office, and given a very nice welcome package which included the option of starting a 401K. As a scientist, I worked in a lab. The conditions were not ideal at the time but the research was eye opening. As a non-profit, this company seems to always be on it's tiptoes but sources of money from the government were always a sure fire thing. Unfourtantely because I was in and out a lot (as a student at the time), I did not interact with management very much but when I did, they were always friendly and incredibly smart. The interactions between me and my coworkers were wonderful and if I had the chance, I would go back in a heartbeat. I'm not sure I'd ever be able to say the same thing about any other company I will work for in the future.
