I have been working at Stony Brook University full-time for more than a year

Pros

You have the opportunity to work with some of the brightest minds in your field. Have access to great, up to date laboratory facilities. You will learn a lot of new things by working hear, both academically and skills for future employment.

Cons

Salary is only high enough for cost of living, not recommended for non-student job seekers. Managers can be too detached from laboratory setting, results in substantial downtime during some parts of the year if you are not proactive.
