Csir Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
The Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) was established by NLC Decree 293 of October 10, 1968, amended by NLCD 329 of 1969, and re-established in its present form by CSIR Act 521 on November 26, 1996. The genesis of the Council, however, dates back to the erstwhile National Research Council (NRC), which was established by the government in August 1958 to organize and coordinate scientific research in Ghana. In 1963, the NRC merged with the former Ghana Academy of Sciences, a statutory learned society. Following a review in 1966, the Academy was reconstituted into, essentially, its original component bodies, namely a national research organization redesignated the CSIR and a learned Society, designated the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Csir as an employer has unfair regulations for students and there are no opportunities to grow, claims a former employee at glassdoor.co.in
"Project deliverables can get delayed due to unforeseen political reasons and sometimes lack of funding. Unfair treatment of students compared to regular employees. Work progress hugely depends on the efficiency of the guide. Lack of motivation due to limited opportunities or career growth. Unfair regulations in revised UGC-NET Exam for students with Engineering Background."

Former Employee - Candidate Systems Engineer says"I worked at CSIR full-time for less than a year Cons: The salary is not great if you do not have masters or higher qualification. They also don't have lots benefits.
