    Great place to postdoc

    Jun 12, 2022 - Postdoctoral Fellow

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Quality of science and access to resources is second to none. Benefits for postdocs are far better than other academic institutions and include: subsidized housing (very close to work), subsidized daycare (located at the university), good health insurance, and miscellaneous employee discounts and perks.

    Cons

    Pay is still far under non-academic salaries, no 401K matching.

    A good workplace but not without problems

    May 29, 2022 - Postdoctoral Fellow

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, childcare, and housing opportunities. Laboratories are generally well-funded, allowing for high-impact research.

    Cons

    It is a relatively insular research community, with minimal interaction among laboratories. There are few support structures for researchers at the postdoctoral level. The institution performs an interest in diversity and inclusion, but this rarely leads to effective actions. High-echelon posts (heads of laboratories and administrative) are predominantly occupied by cisgendered, heterosexual, white men, with little incentive not to uphold the status quo. It is unlikely that the demographics will change any time soon, and this is rather disappointing. Applicants should beware that there does not exist a confidential reporting mechanisms for workplace harassment and bullying.
