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

Pros

Everybody knows the pros and cons of a postdoc regardless of University

Pros:

Flexibility
Benefits (depending of University)
Independence

Cons

NIH salary regardless of state (that means you get same salary not taking into account cost of living of city)
NIH maximum amount of years in post-doc is 5-6 years. After this you are on your own.

    I have been working at University of Washington full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice environment, people there is really friendly. Great life insurance, medical, eye and dental. I had great experience with my previous lab jobs.

    Cons

    Doesn't sponsor H1B visa unless you're a faculty or fellow. Also, there is a lab that is heavily dominated by a certain race.

    Advice to Management

    For the place I am working at: Less nepotism. Consider a raise if the employee is qualified and have talked about it.
