    I have been working at Schepens Eye Research Institute full-time

    Pros

    The people are fantastic, everyone is so sweet, and there are happy hours once a month on Fridays. The work is pretty easy.

    Cons

    Underpaid, no one else does their job so you have to wait weeks for anything to get done. Benefits suck now that Mass Eye and Ear has "merged" with us. Little to no growth potential.

    I worked at Schepens Eye Research Institute full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good flexible hours. No micro managing most of the time. Easy to learn new things.

    Cons

    Work politics is rampant. People like to push their weight around. No advancement opportunities really. It's a research place which means if there are no funds there will be no raises. PI's usually have big egos and can resort to bullying. Work gets tedious and boring.
