    Pros

    - Relaxed work environment
    - Great advisor and co-workers
    - Plenty of learning opportunities
    - Plenty of growth opportunities

    Cons

    - Can get boring sometimes
    - If academic research isn't for you then you'll crash out quickly
    - Academic pay scale leaves a lot to be desired

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Keep up the good work and please do what my advisor did: When someone decides to leave let them stay on until they find another job. Biggest blessing I had.
