    Pros

    Nice collegial atmosphere, good work-life balance depending on your PI, very good compensation compared to a postdoc anywhere else, excellent health insurance.

    Bureaucracy, just like in any government job. Getting things done (paperwork, acquisition of supplies) takes forever.

    Pros

    Plenty of resources, technical and administrative support; Location is well accessible via subway train and buses

    Cons

    Lack of support for early career postdoctoral fellows from many of the section chiefs; very high cost of living, compared to the extreme low salary received by postdoctoral research fellows in their later 20s and 30s!!

    Advice to Management

    Postdoctoral research at NIH require a complete revamping
