I worked at The Scripps Research Institute full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

I received an excellent education and worked with extremely intelligent and hard working colleagues. I got a job very easily directly out of graduate school, even in tough economic times due to the reputation of my graduate adviser and of TSRI. Most colleagues also go on to high profile positions in academia or industry.

Cons

I had to work extremely hard, spending all of my waking time in lab including weekends. I knew this would be the case going in, but it can take a toll on a person who is not prepared. There is also a lot of rivalry between students to be the best.
