    Pros

    AECOM is a solid institution, with known excellence in the field of research. The benefits offered resume pretty much to dental and medical, both have co-pay and are not that bad. It is a respected research facility, some great principal investigators and chances for collaboration. It has served me well in the beginning of my career.

    Cons

    The ownership by Yeshiva University has hurt AECOM. Future is a little unclear, and it seems like Montefiore Group might by it off of Yeshiva. This might bring a fresh look that might better the school. Some administrative personnel don't fully value the PostDoc career, and there is room for improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately management don't fully treat the PosDocs as an important piece of the puzzle. Some have felt they were being treated as if it was a favor for AECOM to even given them a job and treated as if they are not essencial and easily replaced. This is not the truth about postdocs, who in fact are the ones the bring most instruction for the PhD students of the school. The ways PostDocs are treated have a lot of room for improvement.
