    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Scripps Institution of Oceanography full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Location, good people, academic freedom, abundant opportunities to do field work, oh and did I mention... location...

    Cons

    Pay is so low (even for an expensive area) that it's insulting and you'll never get ahead, work hours are long and difficult, and there are virtually no career prospects in academia anymore (especially here at Scripps).
