    It is good for professional development because you can learn a lot in the laboratory and you can also practice your english if your mother language is not english.

    Few departments really fund your professional development well beyond internal courses through the lame central HR training function. Wealth departments conversely spend way too much on known underperformers or people who won't apply the training.
