a prestigious place

Postdoctoral Researcher (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

I have been working at Howard Hughes Medical Institute

ProsHHMI PIs are the most accomplished PIs in biology and has plenty of money to spend on research. HHMI also provides great benefit for postdocs.

ConsFrankly I don't see any downside working for HHMI. Maybe some of the PIs have too much ego and are difficult to deal with?

Advice to Senior ManagementGreat institute! Keep doing your great job and I look forward to seeing greater achievement and greater growth and name recognition.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
