I have been working at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

Pros

postodoc position gives flexibility to choose projects (depending on your advisor). troy is a nice place - close to boston, nyc, adirondacks (need a car though), but winters are long and cold.

Cons

the pay of a postdoc sucks, but you gain valuable experience in mentoring graduate students and writing proposals and grants.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

more information and interaction and transparency between management and employees (professors, supporting staff) and even the graduate and undergrad students would help.

    Pros

    Very nice plan to learn. One of the most beautiful places on the plante.

    Cons

    Bad weather. Salary not that good as in major cities. But the costs are also low compared with major cities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is good. No particular feedback other than that grad students need cheaper places to stay in Troy. Management is already working on it.
