I have been working at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

There is nowhere like Boston for research, and nowhere like the Dana-Farber for cancer research. You will have a great opportunity to make a name for yourself, if you're willing to work for it.

Cons

You are expected to work very hard - but that is top-level Science, not just Dana-Farber. The specific thing I didn't like about Dana-Farber is that it was not a collegial environment and there was little/no collaboration between laboratories.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are some PIs there that are ruthless when it comes to their employees. In many cases, it is a lawsuit waiting to happen.
