    Pros

    Inspiring and collegial atmosphere, great working with students and faculty.

    Cons

    If you get sucked into a project you can almost forget a social life - it's easy to feel the pressure (mostly self-imposed) to work hard and lose yourself in it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure employees are being compensated for overtime worked or take the appropriate time off.
