    Pros

    Big picture of medical research

    Cons

    Everything. Work environment and hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice. It is a tough economy and hard to get funding, so that fact that they expect me to work more and pay me less is merely so they can survive. I'm not sure what else they can do since it is the nature of academia.
