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

    Pros

    Ivy league institute with knowledgeable and field-leading researchers. The benefits are great, parking is free and the campus is beautiful.

    Cons

    Lack of a directly affiliated hospital means biomedical/translational research is limited . Hence, there is a heavy focus on fundamental basic science. Campus and Princeton at large can feel exceedingly slow if you come from a big city.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up good work and expand the scope of the biological sciences, especially in genomics.
