    I have been working at UC Davis full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Interesting work. Excellent benefits. Wonderful town to live in. Mostly very good co workers

    Cons

    low pay, relatively speaking. There is an idea that one can hire a student to do pretty much anything which leads to trouble sometimes because either the student didn't really know what they were doing or they did fine but obviously can't stick around to do maintenance. Still, it's good for the students!

    I have been working at UC Davis for more than a year

    Pros

    A postdoc is a unique experience, it really depends on your supervisor and group. It has been nice at Davis. My group is very good and we have good facilities. I like the town. The campus is nice. There is swimming and a gym available not too far from my office, although I have to pay for these. Pay is tolerable for the town, Davis is not cheap though.

    Cons

    Lots of freedom, almost too much sometimes. You need to keep on yourself to produce. It's your job. There can be a lot of bureaucracy in the university. Postdoc's do not accrue time in the Social Security system, which is something you may want to consider if you've been in Grad School for a while.
