Positive Outlook

I have been working at University of Pittsburgh full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

There are numerous opportunities to continue your education and training. Benefits are excellent! Healthcare and free bus pass. Also, there are plenty of opportunities to attend games and arts venues with half-priced tickets.

Cons

Most of the research assistant jobs are grant funded so be prepared to only have a temporary position in most cases.

Advice to Management

More faculty and staff mixers. The picnic is great but that may be the only time you get to see everyone in the department.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at University of Pittsburgh full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The University of Pittsburgh post-doc association is great at providing support and benefits to postdocs at the University. Further, the extensive research community at UP and surrounding areas is superb.

    Cons

    Working in a lab off campus can be somewhat inconvenient at times as the main university is a 15-20 minute shuttle ride away.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent benefits including great health care, low tuition, and a free bus pass. Working with the students is always fun, too.

    Cons

    The salaries tend to be lower than you would find in the private sector. There is often a lot of bureaucracy for getting decisions made.

    Advice to Management

    Foster more coordination between departments - separate departments often feel more like rivals than teammates.
