    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!
