Pros

Great co-workers, fun atmosphere, employee benefits and programs are wonderful

Cons

Middle management is terrible, and discrimination is evident. Mgrs who treat others in an unacceptable fashion are Not disciplined (HR/Diversity dept is not doing their job)! Dont work there unless you like to be verbally abused, bullied, discriminated against and then made to feel it was your fault!

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees, and terminate management who is causing the problems. You are losing good people (they are quitting)! for no good reason

    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 Management

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

    Pros

    Salary is not controlled by the SChool. Everything is up to a PI. My PI pays postdocs with 3 years of experience 36000 per year. While NIH guidance is 46000

    Cons

    Nice weather :-) and save location
