Former Employee - Postdoctoral Associate in Worcester, MA
Former Employee - Postdoctoral Associate in Worcester, MA

I worked at UMass Medical School full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

good benefits package - better than a lot of places since it's a public institution. good support system with regards to foreign scholars, and there are a lot of good researchers here

Cons

salaries (even those that are NIH guidelines) are guidelines only, it is apparently up to the discretion of the supervisor to follow them. Some supervisors are there only to take advantage of the postdocs and do not care about their next steps, some go out of their way to help, but really, most do not. Parking is terrible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care about your employees as actual human beings that have families, and a future to think about!

    Pros

    It's a project driven environment in the medical school. You will learn a lot hands on skills for doing practical research. The team I have been work with is productive.

    Cons

    Don't expect too much independent time for doing your own research is you don't have your own funding. The pay is in the lower part of the market, given the living cost of Worcester is fairly high. Gym, cafeteria are terrible, benefits are so so.
