Can be stressful
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

Anpassungen an die ansteigenden Studentenzahlen, trotz sehr spannenden Forschungsgebieten, was mir am besten gefallen hat.
Pros
sehr gute Sozialisierung und Entlöhnung
Cons
stark zunehmend wechselnde Flexibilität
