    I worked at DLR for less than a year

    Pros

    Great place to work. They are working on cutting edge technology there. The environment is similar to the one encountered in academics while doing MS or PhD and you have the option to do PhD with the work which you do there. The work life balance is excellent.

    Cons

    Nothing much. As it is a government company, therefore the salaries are low compared to similar jobs in private sector.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really

    I worked at DLR

    Pros

    DLR offers great work life balance and you will work with some very enthusiastic and smart people. The support for new employees is very good.

    Cons

    The pay at DLR is quite limited due to it following the TVOED scale. The work culture can be quite different depending on each institute.

    Advice to Management

    Allows for more mobility within institutes and more collaboration. It seems as if party groups in different locations work on somewhat related projects.
