    I worked at Rutgers University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Rutgers has a pretty solid biomedical sciences program. Your experience will vary tremendously based on who your PI is.
    There is good postdoc support: postdoc appreciation day, iJobs program

    Cons

    Departments could give PIs better financial support.
    Sometimes there is annoying red tape with travel reimbursement, animal facilities, etc.
    I would have stayed if a position would have been available after my postdoc.
