A typical day at work is mostly doing lab research, including experiments and bibliography research. The management is kind of poor. The coworkers are, for most of them, friendly, helpful, collaborative and motivating. The hardest part of the job is to find the right hypothesis, and be able to generate consistent data with addressing all the possible criticisms. Being a PhD candidate does not open any other door for employement. The most enjoyable part is that research is very challenging and never boring.
