    Friendly Atmosphere

    Postdoctoral Fellow (Current Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsThe work environment is great! People are friendly and encouraging. This is a great university to grow as a scientist with plenty of journal clubs and professors that are willing to take a significant amount of time teaching students and postdocs. I've heard that in other universities postdocs are left to fend for themselves and do not feel as if they are a part of the community. That is definitely not the case here.

    ConsThe pay sucks, but then again, that's what 11 years of college gets you nowadays :p

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou should pay your postdocs the NIH standard- 0-1 yr experience= 39,000
