Can be both productive and counter-productive depending on the people you deal with.
Network Operations Manager (Current Employee), Menlo Park, CAApril 8, 2014
Pros: working with military
Cons: long hours, lots of travel, pay is low
Typical days run 12-16 hours of work followed by another hour or so of down time where you may be required to make arrangements for the following days. Learning people skills and time management is the best tool out there to accomplish each and every task in a timely manner. Trust but verify is what I expect from my management and is what I do with – more... my management. Again, this is using the people skill, learning each others strength and weakness is key for knowing who to put where. Hardest part of the day is trying to make situations better or preventing issues from arising and at the same time, accomplishing a task that has been painstaking or challenging is the best feeling one can have. Nothing better than making everything work as it is suppose to. – less

Administrative Assistant II (Former Employee), Menlo Park, CAMarch 4, 2014
My typical day at work was greeting managers and clients on a daily basis while keeping a positive attitude.

My co-workers were great. We worked as a team and enjoy getting the job done in crucial moments.

The hardest part of this job was keeping up with technology.

The most enjoyable part of this job was working – more... with people who helped to empower and embrace the person you are. – less

An Awesome Experience
Recruiter - Contract Assignment (Former Employee), Menlo Park, CAJanuary 27, 2014
First of all if you do not know anything about SRI International I would look them up. I was amazed with everything that they do. Unfortunately this assignment didn't last long because work was slow, but this company is one of the best companies that I have worked for. Great people work there as well!

Great colleagues but lacking career advancement opportunities. Very slow process involved in taking an idea and testing the outcome. Overall has promise but not for postdoctoral fellows wishing to become group leaders

Research Social Scientist III (Former Employee), Menlo Park, CAAugust 21, 2013
Pros: intellectually interesting
Cons: constant hunting for funding
Lots of flexibility in typical work day, but a typical day is a lot longer than 8 hours. I learned about writing competitive federal research grants. Management is mixed, coworkers are generally great, but all employees are competing against one another. Hardest part of the job was the 80 mile commute. Most enjoyable part of the job was finishing a – more... project. – less

Program Manager (Current Employee), Menlo Park, CAJune 4, 2013
SRI is a fun place to work. They give you a lot of freedom to do what you want to do. The biggest downside is they can't handle growth well. Its a great place to tinker around with fun projects.
