    Pros

    Quality of science and access to resources is second to none. Benefits for postdocs are far better than other academic institutions and include: subsidized housing (very close to work), subsidized daycare (located at the university), good health insurance, and miscellaneous employee discounts and perks.

    Cons

    Pay is still far under non-academic salaries, no 401K matching.

    Pros

    Rockefeller is a fantastic university with great benefits and one of the best academic cultures I've ever experienced.

    There are issues with every academic job (particularly with low pay) and each experience will be heavily dependent upon which lab you join.

    Excellent place to begin a career in academia

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    HR is wonderful, excellent health insurance. A great place to learn and gain insight into whether or not grad school is the right path for you.

    Cons

    Your experience will depend a lot on your lab/supervisor, not necessarily a con but possible. 2 years until the university contributes 6% of your salary to retirement. No raises, COL do not keep up with inflation
