Work was very independent. As long as you showed you were working and producing interesting results the management didn't interfere with the work. As I was a research assistant i was working closely with the Phd student who had designed the initial software.

Bad management, vertical hierarchy, some training available but no possibility of freedom, research or publications. No interest to do the best job, only to do a job.

CERN è l'end'point di molte carriere brillanti. Qualunque fisico delle alte neergie vorrebbe vantare di poter aver lavorato al CERN e presso uno degli esperimenti di fisica del grande acceleratore di particelle LHC. Io ho avuto questo prvilegio e ho anche deciso di lasciare questo mondo fatto inizialmnte di grandi stimoli per cercarne di nuovi. Non tutto ciò che oro luccica....
Pros
Fringe benefits diplomatici, salari altissimi, viaggi di lavoro, istruzione dei figli, assicurazione vita e salute per la famiglia.
Cons
Dopo 10 anni la vita si appiattisce

Etre à la foi autonome et partager les différentes idées avec les collaborateurs et responsables. Réunion d'avancement toutes les semaines afin de partager les recherches entres les différents projet, les différents résultats. Le milieu international permet de partager les différentes cultures, rencontrer des collègues de partout dans le monde. L'aspect le plus difficile du poste peut être l'exigence et la qualité dans le milieu de la recherche fondamentale et les aspect agréables sont les moyens techniques, humains et financiers pour mener à bien nos différentes missions.
Pros
Condition de travail, milieu internationale, collègues

I was a research assistant for one lab at CERN. My experience was crafted solely based on the management of that lab and is not characteristic of CERN as a whole

When it was established CERN was a great idea. A good physicist does not mean a good manager. Administration is heavy and badly managed from people who does not know the work on the lower level.

il est très difficile de donner mon avis sur une entreprise tel que le CERN. Chaque section, ou département sont différents, avec un management différent Cependant, au jour d'aujourd'hui, quel que soit la section, il est très difficile d'obtenir un contrat fixe au sein du CERN

Le monde de la recherche est un monde fascinant par l'esprit d'innovation et de collaboration qu'il inspire. Les valeurs du CERN basées sur l'échange, la créativité et le respect en font un lieu de travail très stimulant où chaque employé, dans ses fonctions, participe activement à l 'accomplissement de la mission du CERN.
Pros
Culture de collaboration et recherche continuelle de progrès et d'excellence
Cons
Précarité de l'emploi- contrats à durée limitée.

Mon travail consiste à réaliser des mesures radiologiques pour protéger le personnel des rayonnements ionisants qui émanent des installations. L'objectif est de vérifier que les niveaux de radiations ne dépassent pas les seuils maximum prévus par la règlementation. Pour cela, on réalise des mesures avec des détecteurs mobiles en plus de la surveillance permanente réalisée par les moniteurs fixes.
Pros
Cadre scientifique

Au niveau technique le CERN regroupe de très nombreux domaines : cryogénie, HVAC, réseau électrique complexe, convertisseurs de puissance, supraconducteurs, fibres optique ultra haut débit,..........véritable vivier technologique et un potentiel d'apprentissage fantastique pour les stagiaires, doctorants, jeunes diplômés et également les ingénieurs expérimentés voire experts. Par contre le système de recrutement avec contrat LD (4 ou 5 ans) ne convient pas du tout pour les ingénieurs expérimentés avec un taux de conversion en contrat IC (durée indéterminée) de l'ordre de 25% !!!!!! Le management, et donc les opportunités de développement, est entièrement à la tête du client et complètement déconnecté des compétences et du mérite, contrairement aux discours RH. Afin d'obtenir le passage de LD en IC mieux vaut donc cultiver son réseau et sa visibilité auprès de la haute hiérarchie. FAIRE SAVOIR VAUT MIEUX QUE SAVOIR-FAIRE !!! BIEN REFLECHIR AVANT D'ENTRER AU CERN !!!!!
Pros
Incroyable richesse technique et humaine
Cons
Management subjectif

Travailler au CERN c'est à la fois faire preuve d'une grande autonomie tout en mettant ses compétences au service des différents groupes de travail. L'atmosphère de travail est extrêmement agréable de par les activités et surtout par l'esprit d'équipe des collaborateurs. Le management est à l'écoute et promeut, dans la mesure du possible, les évolutions. J'ai participé à un large éventail d'activités, qui m'a permis de renforcer mon sens des priorités et de l'organisation.

CERN is an exciting workplace provided that you land a job in the Physics department. You have the feeling that you're sitting at the cutting edge of physics research and that you're helping advance it. There aren't many other jobs out there that can make you feel the same way. My job has always been very intellectually stimulating and challenging, but very rewarding. The programming effort has always been diverse: I had to solve complex 3d geometry problems, study algorithms modelling the interaction between particles and sensor material and even redesign the architecture of the software project. Plus, I got to present the project at a conference and publish a paper on a journal. At CERN meetings are very frequent (too frequent, probably) and almost always you have to do a presentation. The downside to CERN and especially to the Physics dept. is that it's managed like academia, that is poorly. The communication between different departments is weak. You won't make career in Physics at CERN and the jobs are always very technical. The only management experience you'll likely get is supervising a summer intern. However, the biggest downside is the dearth of employment opportunities. In Physics it's almost impossible to even land a "staff" position (which at CERN it means a 5 years contract). In other departments becoming staff is easier (although getting a permanent position after the 5 years is still very very difficult). CERN is a nice place to work for 2-3 years at most, then a safer bet is to move to a more secure job and one allowing you to develop also other - more...
Pros
exciting work in the Physics department, international environment, many young people
Cons
no permanent positions, poorly managed, only technical experience

Symbole de la collaboration des pays Européens après la seconde guerre mondiale, le CERN est une formidable aventure à la recherche de l'origine de l'humanité ou chaque domaine scientifique et technologique sont abordés en profondeur. J'ai eu la chance de constater lors d'un stage d'ingénieur que les moyens, humains et matériels déployés sont à la hauteur des importantes tâches qui lui sont assignées. La richesse culturel du laboratoire regroupe plus de 113 nationalités différentes, ce qui en fait un des viviers de savoir le plus grand de la planète. Cette expérience me fut très enrichissante tant sur le plan humain que sur le plan scientifique.
Pros
Richesse culturel, Haut niveau de savoir, moyen financier important, bonne ambiance de travaille
Cons
Difficile d'obtenir un poste permanent.

I gained valuable experience. Specifically, it was possible use the opportunity to hone technical and practical skills and learn how to work effectively as part of a research team and how to grasp a new field of research. In additiion because of to meet tight deadlines and deal with culture communication gaps, I developed organizational, time-management and communication skills as a member of a diverse and demanding environment.
