Pros

I worked in the department of genome sciences and the quality of the work there was top-notch nearly across the board. Numerous top-tier academics and superb access to resources. Individual experiences will depend on the position and the lab, but I suspect that most people looking for a high powered academic job won't be disappointed by the genome sciences dept.

Cons

It's a huge state institution with all of the headaches that normally come with such places - there's a fair amount of red tape, and attempting to change some policy or procedure is likely impossible. Parking near campus is close to impossible, and the buses don't typically run on time.

    Cons

    As with all academic positions, salary is little below industry (but compensated for with amazing PTO, flexible hours, and medical costs).
