    Pros

    Cutting edge technology
    Smart people

    Cons

    Not a stimulating environment. Most of the people are reclusive and do not talk.
    Many lab offer salary below NIH minimum scale as Yale has its own minimum (lower than NIH payscale)
    Majority of PIs are busy and do not care about your career

    Advice to Management

    Please follow NIH minimum guideline for post doc salary.
    Do not exploit the foreign worker

    Pros

    Benefits, christmas and new years off.

    Cons

    Extremely understaffed with management, at least in certain departments. 2-4 jobs being covered by one person, with constantly higher performance expectations. Set up for failure. No personal life because you're trying to do so many jobs and constantly under pressure.
