Heartwarming students, but undeniably a bureaucracy

Pros

The students are delightful and the faculty are world-class. Alumni love this place for a reason, or 100 reasons. Teaching, discoveries, summits, research, enhancement are all normal events.

Cons

Difficult to earn a promotion, individuals with a strong interest in career progression must be very determined or find a great mentor and seek the next job on his/her own. Can be discouraging to see some coworkers focused on the retirement end-game rather than the opportunity to support our students. This seems trivial until you have to deal with it: commuting to campus is not easy, particularly if you drive and park here.

    Pros

    The PI for the lab is incredibly knowledgeable and can provide excellent contacts within the field of toxicology. He is also great for career advising. There is also as much mobility as you desire in the lab.

    Cons

    You get out of the experience what you put into it. You can easily slack off and not learn anything.
