I also got this problem with new computer and new game. I had a couple expansions, game and stuff packs when I started playing. I caved and bought Get Famous and that solved it for me!

I don't think its get famous as I do not have that pack, I am having the same problem though.

I also have this issue. No workers in science labs from Get To Work. Repairing the game does not bring the results. Also trees and other plants in lab neighbourhood are 2D o_O

Same issue -- just got the game on the recent sale, along with Get to Work and Dine Out, nothing else.  First game got a receptionist and nobody else, later games after trying everything listed (aside from buying GF) and a full uninstall/reinstall don't even get that much -- just a building devoid of other sims.  Adding played sims to the scientist career does bring them in, though, but the other reported issues for the career are present for me as well (e.g., unable to do the 'transform grass' task as there is no selectable grass).

No coworkers appearing in science career.

I had a brand new sim on a brand new save join the science career and there aren't any coworkers showing up. There are also other issues such as the aliens never visiting and the "transform grass" task being impossible. I know there is a whole other thread on this but it says "solved" when it really isn't. A lot of other people are having the same issue as of late and the only "solution" is to manually go in and make townies quit their jobs and join the science career, which seems ridiculous to me. Does EA even know about this? and if they do, are they going to bother to do anything? Even if I were to go in and force other sims to join the science career, it wouldn't solve the other recent issues with the transform grass task for example.

Just a quick update -- picked up Get Famous and, like others reported, co-workers started showing up no problem, on both existing and new saves, with and without folks already in the scientist career.  The transform grass bit is still non-functional, though.

I'm having the same issue, played the game months ago on origin access then cancelled that, then bought the game in the recent sale. Couldn't decide whether to be a doctor or detective so went Scientist, only to find the lot deserted. I don't particularly want to buy an expansion pack I don't really want (fame was pretty much just a massive burden in Sims 3) to solve the issue nor do I want to play households just to make them pick that career, so I guess I'll be waiting until EA come out with what sounds like a single line of code (the same code that autospawns doctors and detectives that's missing from the scientist career as mentioned earlier in this thread) to fix a three month old problem. If they ever do, given that sims 5 is coming out soon! Had a pretty bad experience with a lot of bugs in Sims 3 (esp. World Adventures) that just never got patched because Sims 4 was coming out, so excuse my cynicism!
