I worked at Howard Hughes Medical Institute full-time (more than a year)

Pros

The labs usually have more than sufficient funding to do research.
Competitive pay and benefits.
Great place for biomedical research.

Cons

Bureaucratic organization and management.
The office and HR loves and only cares about paper works.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to think about career development for employees (that are not PIs), and about work-life balance of employees (especially research associates). Currently they do NOT seem to care.

    Pros

    The people are what make HHMI what it is today.

    Cons

    One of the perks is tuition reimbursement but don't let that fool you. They decide whether they want to further your career development.
