    Pros

    Great learning experience
    Flexible schedule to come in
    Paid internship
    Laid-back atmosphere
    Cool post-doc (depends on the lab)

    Cons

    Doesn't get any raise
    Tasks are very dependent on your post-doc (you can either learn a lot of great deals about their research, or just do some elementary experiment)

    Pros

    Great colleagues. The faculty, students, and postoctoral fellows are truly first rate. The infrastructure/ and facilities are also excellent.

    Cons

    The only downside is that it is a "soft money" institution, so the principal investigators need to spend much of their time writing grants. Another con is that only the NIH pays the full overhead on grants, so they are almost the sole source of grant funds.
