    StarStarStarStarStar Current Postdoctoral Researcher in Amherst, Massachusetts

    Good benefits overall, but the retirement plan is a scam. Health insurance, flexible hours, and professional development are great, but relatively easy for the university to offer a young and generally healthy population. As a clear professional (postdoctoral researcher), I'm frustrated that the retirement plan consists of an obligatory pretax contribution to a savings account. There is no employer match, and the account generates no revenue, and university (state) employees contribute nothing to social security. This retirement savings account money can either be transferred to an IRA or paid to the employee (and taxed as income) at the end of employment. Until then the money just sits.
