    I have been working at Rutgers University full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    From my point of view as someone new to the East Coast, it pays quite well. Work hours are flexible, and my immediate supervisor is incredibly supportive

    Cons

    Things are really messy with the merger between Rutgers and the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. It feels like no one knows exactly what is going on.
