    Pros

    The community and people I work with in my lab are great. Everyone gets along really well and communicate well with each other.

    Cons

    UMass requires experience to be at UMass for it to count towards a salary bump. My starting salary was exactly the same as I made with my BS. They don't reward for a MS degree.
