    I have been working at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It's definitely a good place to do science. Many PIs have a lot of money to allow you do what you want. Pace is relatively fast and that makes you productive. Because it's a small place with only a couple of hundred people, everyone knows each other. You can actually make friends and have fun with those people.

    Cons

    It's a isolated place in long island. it's hard to have a social life outside work or to meet more people. And this kind of intimacy shared among people here is not good for everyone. Besides, life expense is high, especially rent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It feel like a company run by a family. Some people have too much power while regulations are not so useful here.

    I have been working at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Beautiful campus and easy commute from living in Suffolk county while coworkers come from an extremely diverse background.

    Cons

    The campus community is comprised mostly of scientists who either keep to themselves or lack even the basic social skills so networking might be a bit hard. Management are usually quite uptight so improvements that are offered will usually land on hollow ears.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please listen to your employees when we offer solutions to commonly occurring problems.
