I worked at University of Pennsylvania part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The staff and administrators I worked with were all great. I was a good experience and had no big issues while I was there.

Cons

When working for a university, there can be a lot of "red tape," although Penn is pretty good with this.

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

    Pros

    There is a strong Postdoctoral program with a lot of workshops and enrichment activities. They really do try to get the postdocs to become active in the university.

    Cons

    Postdocs are expected to work long hours. During orientation, they put up a slide saying that we should expect to work 75 hours per week!
