    Pros

    Nice environment with fewer crazy bosses. Not unhealthily competitive like the other big schools. Great career support for various alternative career pathways from the Center for Biomedical Career Development (led by a very enthusiastic and dedicated Cynthia Fuhrmann).

    Cons

    UMass doesnt enforce the NIH recommended postdoc pay. It leaves it up to the PIs. This means that many PIs (mine included) don't pay NIH recommended postdoc salaries.

    Advice to Management

    At the basic minimum, you absolutely need to follow NIH postdoc pay recommendations. Its a shameful especially when other schools in the area enforce the NIH postdoc pay recommendations
