    Exciting academic experience.

    I have been working at Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute

    Pros

    Science level is high. Interesting and exciting, good place to study. Colaborating atmosphere.

    Cons

    As a job, long work hours and get paid less. Different depending on lab, but in general, postdoc's salary is low for highly educated scientist nation wide and hard to make living with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No protection for postdoc workers. PI can order whatever, and postdoc have to swallow it. Union or law would help. No future direction other than becoming a PI.
