    I worked at Howard Hughes Medical Institute full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful campus. Fun and well thought out social events. There's a gym with classes, great salad bar in the cafeteria and restaurant with prices from the 1980s. Decent social scene at the on-site restaurant if you live on campus, considering you're in the suburbs.

    Cons

    Even PIs don't have great job security since they're reviewed every 5-6 years (there's no tenure here). Not quite as laid back as a University and doesn't have the same feel as a University . The non-scientists (which probably outnumber the scientists) work 9-5 and do not dress like they're in academia, which allows a little bit of a corporate feel to sneak in which is completely missing in a University setting. And somewhat ironically the support staff, HR and core facility people have more job security than the scientists, even though science is the core mission of HHMI.
