Pros

You have flexible hours, scientific freedom, and are surrounded by some of the best scientists in the world.

Cons

It is very hard to get a permanent position as a PhD scientist (unless you are a prof), so think of it as a place to learn and then find somewhere else.

    Pros

    Great place for collaboration. Number of amazing postdocs who can run their own labs but still stuck here due to limited number of academic jobs.

    Cons

    No work life balance. "Work until you produce the beautiful graph and we dont care how mnay hours a week you put in" seems to be the motto of this place.

    Advice to Management

    Please appreciate the fact that research is a noble cause and postdocs work for peanuts ! So please create a safety net and monitor the PI -postdoc relationships. Encourage postdoc committees that work like grad student committees.
