Can be stressful
Research Assistant (Former Employee) –  Zürich, ZHOctober 25, 2018
The company is great in terms of financing, it is the largest employer in Switzerland. However, it can be stressful working there if the management is pushing for too much competitiveness. As the image of the company is very important, problems are often hushed and not solved quickly enough.
Pros
Great infrastructure
Cons
Professors have too much power

Inspiring and challenging workplace
Postdoctoral Fellow (Current Employee) –  ETH Zurich, campus IrcelAugust 26, 2016
Working at ETH Zurich has given me the opportunity to gain new knowledge in the field of neuroimaging and neuroscience. I've massively widened my research profile and skills, and am looking forward to translate this back to clinics.

The supervision and daily contact with colleagues are great, and I truly enjoy my work environment. Our discussions are always inspiring, off and on the work floor.

The hardest part of this job is the constant pressure to publish, while looking for funding and keeping your experiments running.

The most enjoyable part is the possibility to learn every day, being challenged and improve yourself and the flexibility in work time.
Pros
good work environment and great facilities
Cons
limited prospects with respect to permanent position
