    I have been working at Yale University full-time

    Pros

    Yale provides some of the best benefits for postdoctoral associates, such 8 weeks paid maternity leave. However, there are no retirement benefits. The health insurance has covered most of my health care, but it is not always easy to get into to see your doctor.

    Cons

    This is a high pressure environment. If you do a postdoctoral position here, you should be prepared to work a lot and be highly productive. The benefits and compensation are different between postdoctoral associate and postdoctoral fellow. Be sure that you understand the difference.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have retirement benefits as a postdoc and not have to use the same health care as the undergraduates.
