Pros

NIH is an amazing place to work.The mentors, at least in my lab, are fantastic and I couldn't ask for a better opportunity. The seminars and resources are really great and I highly advice future trainees to take advantage of everything that this training position has to offer!

    I have been working at NIH full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay (for a postdoc). Health insurance is great, although there are no other benefits. Well funded lab, energetic co-workers, lots of opportunities to collaborate with other labs and interact with other PIs.

    Cons

    Typical government red-tape and restrictions- lots of paper work and regulations for travel, ordering supplies. Lots of paperwork for any collaborations outside of NIH. However, the support staff is very helpful with making sure everything is in order.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Full benefits for post-docs (including higher pay) would be great!
