I have been working at The University of Massachusetts Amherst full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good for research work, the envrionement is generally quiet. You can focus on the work you are doing. The nearby towns are good for night life too.

Cons

Bad location. This university may not be good for people just want to find a job. It's in a rural area where some companies would not come to do a campus career fair.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve quality of campus's facility

    Interesting place to work

    I have been working at The University of Massachusetts Amherst

    Pros

    Being a graduate student you get flexibility in working hours and the coolness of doing research that is novel.

    Cons

    Pay is terrible, advisors are often crazy, and it feels like it will never end. I feel like quitting all the time and I don't know if it will help advance my career at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise management to allow more research rotatoins and higher stipends for graduate students. However, with the current science funding situation being what it is, the latter is unlikely to happen.
