    Nice place to do research, some holes in postdoctoral policies

    Postdoctoral Fellow (Current Employee)

    ProsSuperb support staff makes it easy for researchers to focus on their research. Nice facilities and perks like on-site fitness classes and catering.

    ConsNo set policy for postdocs for time off, sick leave, etc benefits -- they leave this completely up to individual lab managers/PIs which means there is great variation both for better and worse.
