Pros

This is a prestigious and fantastic institute. Anyone who is part of a Howard Hughes Medical. Institute laboratory should be very proud.

Cons

It is very difficult to obtain a position as a HHMI investigator. Also, working in an HHMI lab can at times be stressful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please continue to maintain the high standards of this fantastic organization. People affiliated with HHMI labs are very proud and I want this tradition to continue.

    Pros

    There are many great things about being a postdoc for the the HHMI; for example:
    large research budget
    good health benefits
    transparent administration
    collaborative and supportive scientific environment

    Cons

    One tough thing about being an HHMI postdoc is the expectation to produce top tier publications in a timely fashion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think it would be useful to have a mechanism for HHMI postdocs to give feedback about their PI's to the persons at HHMI HQ.

    Pros

    HHMI is a very positive place to work. You can feel great about the work the organization is doing to benefit the scientific community.

    Cons

    Management is in a transition and as with all transitions it is difficult for many to adjust. Some of the changes are good, others are not as good for employees. Though in comparison with other companies out there, overall people are satisfied with their employment here at HHMI.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication is the key. Make sure you are listening to those around you and as you make changes that you make the reasons for your choice of direction clear.
