    I worked at Wistar Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Smaller tight knit family of researchers with access to almost everything UPenn has to offer.

    Cons

    Same cons as being a post-doc at any institution. Lousy pay, crazy hours, difficult to start a family in this line of work. Your experience probably depends more on your mentor than the institution.

    Advice to Management

    Strengthen relationship with UPenn, its an invaluable asset. Sponsor activities with UPenn post-docs to provide better networking opportunities.

    I have been working at Wistar Institute full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good health insurance options, common use equipment and core facilities are great resources, lots of opportunities to meet other scientists

    Cons

    If you have a problem with your current lab, it does not seem feasible to move to another lab easily as the PI you work with pays your salary.

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier to voice concerns without the fear of retribution
