    I have been working at Sanger Institute full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Very pleasant campus, nice academic feel, excellent facilities, great people. Nice place for a short stint.

    Cons

    No career prospects, relatively poor salaries, managers who mostly don't want to be managers but have been promoted outside of their areas of expertise. The Peter Principle very much applies here.
