    I have been working at Yale University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Cutting edge research, access to state of the art equipment, great neuroscience community, freedom to evolve your own research which may depend on your PI.

    Cons

    Highly competitive and fast-paced. Hard to take time off because of the pressure to publish.

    I have been working at Yale University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Amazing connections to brilliant people, doing innovative work. Very humbling experience. I don't think i could have succeeded anywhere else..

    Cons

    New Haven is insanely expensive because landlords know they have a captive student population that keeps returning to the university year after year.

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

    Pros

    Great scientific environment. Talks, seminars, knowledgeable colleagues. Labs are led by independent PIs, as such work environments vary greatly

    Cons

    High paced environment, which is not necessarily a negative. It is a great place for people who want to emerge themselves in science.

    Advice to Management

    Postdoctoral fellows fall mainly under the management of the individual PIs. Management styles vary. Pick a lab in which you are comfortable. You will spend many hours there.
