    I have been working at Weizmann Institute of Science full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent core facilities that have staff that teaches you and helps you in your research. A relatively high pay check. Most importantly the Feinberg School is run in a way that tries to help the student be all he can.

    Cons

    The education program is a bit lacking in the investment of time to get a coherent study flow. Most courses repeat every two years so you could have the first year a course in advanced immunology and in the next year the basic course.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a course schedule in which fundamental courses repeat every year.

    I have been working at Weizmann Institute of Science full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The faculty is world class, the environment is super-friendly, there's a truly scientific environment, there aren't a lot of formal requirements and you can really focus on researching the things that interest you. No tuition for MSc/PhD students and a nice stipend.

    Cons

    A lot of independent work so you really have to stay motivated and work on your own to succeed (no one will push you). In some areas research areas are quite narrow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More emphasis on gradually mentoring the students into the research world.

    I worked at Weizmann Institute of Science full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    People in the department are very friendly, administration has a very positive atmosphere. Cookie breaks every day, beer every week, and a nice stipend in Israeli standards. They were very easygoing about when I start the postdoc and when I end it, and everything was well arranged, that is, when you arrive you have an office and a computer waiting for you, not something standard in Israel.

    Cons

    Relatively small group. Very little contact with undergraduate students, which is both a blessing and a curse. Very few formal requirements - again a blessing and a curse.
