    Pros

    Free and easy environment. Great people and ideas popping up everyday.

    Cons

    Loose research management can mean unproductive work. Research experience is strongly related to your direct principle investigator, which means your research experience/anticipation may differ very much from what you anticipate from a high-ranking university/department. Choose your PI and research project wisely.
