    I worked at Princeton University full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The campus is beautiful, and all the staff and fellow researchers are extremely helpful, just generally nice people.

    Cons

    The pay in my position was pretty low, but I suppose that's understandable considering I was a rising sophomore at the time of employment.

    I have been working at Princeton University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Finally, you get paid to be a student rather than accumulating debt. And with free health care, and optional (but affordable) vision and dental
    - The graduate school organizes events for the grad student population
    - I've had good experience with advisors, but that will vary depending on whom you're with. ASK PEOPLE IN THE LAB!!! It's important.
    - Good running nearby (towpath along the canal) and nice countryside to bike through just a few miles out of town.

    Cons

    - Very difficult to meet people outside the grad student bubble
    - Housing office is terrible, but you only have to deal with them a few times
    - Little to do off campus unless you go far afield.

    Advice to Management

    Academia in general needs more career advice for people pursuing non-postdoc jobs. If that's the path most people take, why is it considered an "alternative" career path?
