Pros

The UC is well known for cutting edge research and great faculty. As a postdoc, it provides a perfect environment to build your career. I'm not sure about other postdocs' situations, but I get a full medical/dental/vision health insurance plan and 4 weeks of paid vacation.

Cons

There can be a lot of big egos to wade through at times, but if you work for the right people there is no reason you can't succeed.

Advice to Management

I wish there were some sort of postdoc association to meet other postdocs. At times it can be very hard to meet other people in a new town and it would be nice to have some events where postdocs could gather and talk.

    Pros

    respected research institution that keeps faculty motivated to be current in their particular fields.

    Cons

    a boatload of beaurocracy and having to fight for respect, especially from faculty of color

    Advice to Management

    listen to and respect faculty opinion, and try not to be so chicanerous in your administrative duties


  2. No overtime, small compensation
