    I have been working at Yale University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great environment -- smart people, stimulating, lots of free lectures and talks by anyone you can imagine. Excellent benefits. though some are being phased out or lessened for new employees

    Cons

    It's very decentralized and can be frustrating. If you are looking for everything to make sense and be orderly, that will depend on how cohesive and well run your own work unit is. Lots of variation in the quality of the management. Very good senior leadership but not focused on understanding and motivating staff (as opposed to faculty). Mobility is difficult once you rise in the ranks.

    Advice to Management

    Find a champion for staff at the officer level. John Pepper did this well.

    I worked at Yale University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are many high profile professors, and, of course, Yale has an immediate name recognition associated with it. Just make sure to pick your lab and mentor wisely.

    Cons

    Postdocs aren't considered employees and receive benefits that are terrible in comparison to real employees (students get much better healthcare benefits too).

    Advice to Management

    Quit treating postdocs as non-employees and pay fair wages in comparison to other ivy league institutions.
