One of the most respected place on Earth in Life Science.
Staff Researcher (Former Employee) – La Jolla, CA – November 6, 2014
The Institute is open for 24/7 with excellent Facility Services. We have professional leadership in each departments with highly respected Professors from all around the World. Well equipped laboratories, perfect safety environments , massive building which is safe for extreme earthquake. Beautiful view to the Pacific Ocean, good cafeteria. Excellent scientific presentations near every week, large variety of social programs, such as Symphony at Salk. I am participating and leading a friendly soccer team since the last 21 years, playing twice a week on the lawn of the Institute, and accept boys and girls from the near-by research and educational facilities, such as Scripps, and UCSD.
Our co-workers are from the five Continents, working together in harmony and successfully.
The hardest part of my job is the HF cleavage of the peptides from the polymer matrix. HF (hydrogen fluoride) is one of the most dangerous gas among millions of chemicals used today.
The most enjoyable part is the birthday celebrations of our existing and ex-workers in our group, which is going back in decades.
All together, the Salk Institute is a dream place for work in life sciences.
The proof is my 21 years here.
I have no negative comments.
