Great place for biomedical research with significant resources.

I worked at NIH full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

For scientific training, NIH is overall a great place to work. The resources for research are the best you will find in the country. There is the opportunity to interact with scientists from many different fields in the biological sciences and the possibility to attend an abundance of scientific and training seminars.

Cons

For postdoctoral scientists, it is difficult to transition from NIH to academia or industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reduce the training of postdoctoral fellows unless the job environment for scientists improves.

    I have been working at NIH full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The ability to conduct science is unrivaled at NIEHS. The core facilities and expertise and equipment available are fantastic. In addition, the salary is typically better than .edu postdoc positions and the health insurance is free for you and your family and is better than the FTE government insurance.

    Cons

    Make sure you branch out and identify good mentors, as well as take advantage of the numerous networking functions. It can be easy to get lost in the crowd if you aren't serious about your postdoc.
