    Good working environment, supervisor is very nice. As a foreigner, it's not easy to fit it.

    I have been working at ETH Zurich

    Pros

    ETH is a highly credible research institution. The facilities are some of the best in the world which allows for a very competitive research environment. I have worked at many other high level research institutions with large budgets and none come close to the resources available at ETH.

    Cons

    Working hours are long, but this is common in academia and varies highly based on the adviser. Also, the location is somewhat out of the city if 'hardcore' science is done. The biggest con is certainly the pay. The pay for a postdoc is set by the department section, so it is highly variable.
