    I have been working at University of Miami full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great culture and pride at the university
    - Supportive and friendly team members make for a great work environment
    - UM has lots of programs to assist employees and improve their lives. There's the Well 'Canes Wellness Incentives Program where you sign up and earn points for logging your weight, food, and exercise. You can attend free seminars on meditation, managing stress in the workplace, women's self defense, retirement educational sessions, etc. When you accumulate 1,500 points you get a $300 bonus on your next paycheck!
    - Excellent healthcare, retirement & tuition benefits
    - Employee discounts on athletic tickets
    - It's all about the U

    Cons

    - The pressure to get extramural funding at the medical campus can be stressful
    - It's easy to get trapped in a postdoc position for many years. The university needs to set a clear path for postdocs so they eventually transition into faculty roles such as research scientist or lecturer.

    Advice to Management

    It's easy for postdocs to get trapped in this training role for many years. The university and/or advisers need to work together with postdocs to set a clear path so that postdocs transition into faculty positions.
