    Business Outlook

    Pros

    -Excellent resources for researchers in general. -Excellent and well organized Ph.D. program with strong leadership. -Lots of high quality research at Vanderbilt. -Graduate student stipend is quite good for the cost of living in Nashville, at least as far as graduate student stipends go... -Exceptional career development program for graduate students, arguably one of the best I've ever seen.

    Cons

    -While most graduate advisers are at least adequate, some are downright awful and have no respect for their students, be very careful who you choose as your mentor/graduate adviser. -Graduate student benefits leave a lot to be desired. -Generally speaking, the quality of the university upper management and administration has declined in the recent past. -For most labs, work/life balance does not exist if you are a graduate student.

    Good place to do academic research, with its pros and cons

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Leading research institution Many opportunities for collaboration Many core resources Frequent seminars, etc to meet leading scholars A career development program is available to postdocs

    Cons

    As elsewhere, postdoctoral salaries are significantly lower than industry jobs, etc Your success highly depends on the research group that you join You have to be a good scientist, and there is a luck element in the research you do as well As elsewhere, postdoc period is a ticking clock, and there is a lot of stress associated with making steady progress with research/publication There may be some specific cons about VUMC that others would notice, but they don't really come to mind, I think VUMC/Vanderbilt are comparable to many other leading research institutions
