    Pros

    It's definitely a good place to do science. Many PIs have a lot of money to allow you do what you want. Pace is relatively fast and that makes you productive. Because it's a small place with only a couple of hundred people, everyone knows each other. You can actually make friends and have fun with those people.

    Cons

    It's a isolated place in long island. it's hard to have a social life outside work or to meet more people. And this kind of intimacy shared among people here is not good for everyone. Besides, life expense is high, especially rent.

    Advice to Management

    It feel like a company run by a family. Some people have too much power while regulations are not so useful here.

    Pros

    Some of the best brains and talent, beautiful location

    Cons

    Too much power given to PIs who abuse it, and management looks the other way. Have never seen such waste of government money obtained as grants

    Advice to Management

    Be fair. Do not follow PIS blindly . Build a ethical culture. Do not destroy lives of people just to appease a few PIs blindly
