    I have been working at Brookhaven LAB

    Pros

    Good postdoc salary compared to other institutions.
    Good facilities for quality of life, like gymnasium, swimming pool, day care, free parking, pollution free.

    Cons

    Away from city life, in the middle of nowhere.
    Difficulty in access for your relatives, friends, partner if you are a foreign citizen.
    Very few opportunities to attend conferences and workshops or to host and organize conferences and workshops.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more opportunities to retain talent.
    Postdocs should not be seen as cheap expendable labor.

    I worked at Brookhaven LAB

    Pros

    Science -- A diverse array of scientific opportunities for research with world class people.

    Location -- Reasonably close to New York City.

    Cons

    Location -- Upton, NY is in the pine barrens of Long Island. There is not a lot around the lab to do. The cost of living is also substantial.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend less time addressing the lab community as a whole. Lab wide meetings are informative and helpful, but there were too many while I was there.
