    Pros

    HHMI really knows how to get research done - they take care of their employees and let science happen. Fantastic benefits and support staff really make life easy as a researcher

    Cons

    Funding is obviously hard to get and doesn't last forever... a funded PI might have more objections as well, but those aren't clear to researchers working further down the food chain.
