    I have been working at Howard Hughes Medical Institute full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great program for investigators and their teams
    Supports cutting edge research

    Cons

    Headquarters is a mess - cutting salaries and benefits, firing people left and right, punative punishments, a culture of fear
    Meanwhile leadership says "let them eat cake!" enjoying exorbitant salaries, luxurious offices, homes and cars paid for by the institute, first class travel and fancy dinner dances

    I have been working at Howard Hughes Medical Institute full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Better pay, better benefits. HHMI employees get average 20% more than their university peers, plus, their medical benefits are very attractive.

    Cons

    More work pressure, greater expectations from PI. After all, it is still an academic institute, means your salary is not comparable to a similar industry job.
