    Pros

    Rich funding, many opportunities for collaboration

    Cons

    Staff Scientist position is not great. It sounds convenient system, but it is just designed to keep talented scientist for Principal Investigator (PI).
    If you want to be a real independent as scientist, you need to leave Staff position and become PI.

    Advice to Management

    Provide leadership programs for PIs. Many PI are very intelligent but not good at managing fellows.
