What do you like about working at University of Massachusetts?

"The work atmosphere was so very pleasant with all learned people around you to look up to. For every question of mine, their was a convincing answer. Also their was the flexibility on job, you could be providing support on networks, sometimes designing networks or testing the equipment in lab before installing it on the production network. Their were various roles which I was mentored for and that too with a very helpful work environment."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"The most important tip is that one should show eagerness and desire to learn and upgrade one's technical skills. Also one needs to be confident in the interview as the job profile sometimes does have a support role wherein you have to handle irate professors and lab incharge. One needs to show inclination towards customer service as well."

"The compensation was not according to industry standards, but that's the way it is, because it was a place to learn and grow."

Postdoctoral Scientist

"Great place to work!"

What do you like about working at University of Massachusetts?

"It is a very collegial place to do science--most people were open and willing to help others with whatever they could. The facilities and equipment are generally very good, as are a lot of the administration stuff. For a postdoc, the benefits were outstanding- state retirement, matching 401k, and really affordable good health insurance (employer pays 2/3)--a lot of places do not offer postdocs nearly the benefits UMass Med School does."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"The quality of your life while working at UMass Med School depends largely on the investigator you plan to work with. If a PI you're interested in will not give you a NIH standard salary (for 0-4 yrs postdoc anyways) look at another lab. Worcester and MA in general are expensive places to live."

What don't you like about working at University of Massachusetts?

"The only major negative was a lack of career support by the university. There is no 'office' postdocs can go to get help/guidance/advice on how to get to the next step in their careers. However, this was being addressed at the time I was leaving (2008). Minor quibbles are that all PI's do not pay the same rate (something to watch for), and the minimum postdoc salary is low (below NIH guidelines last I heard)."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Improve min salaries to NIH scale or better, Postdoc career office."

Computer Technician

What do you like about working at University of Massachusetts?

"Work freedom."

What don't you like about working at University of Massachusetts?

"Growth."

Project Manager

"A mixed bag of positive and negative, depending on the type of position."

What do you like about working at University of Massachusetts?

"There was flexibility, but at times the policies were too loose and open to abuses by others. Beautiful setting, location very nice."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?

"Be sure your interviewer knows all the administrative facts about your position, particularly with respect to grant-funded employment."

What don't you like about working at University of Massachusetts?

"Poor documentation, poor chain of command, hard to follow up on anything above or outside your immediate project(s). Performance reviews were non existent, as were opportunities to take career development training. Unless you're administrative staff, working there as a non-faculty, grant-funded professional was not always well accommodated. Some buildings are in bad condition, especially if you're there full time."

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Get the paper trails working more efficiently for employees. Have more control over who to talk to for administrative questions and problems. Get your buildings in shape--older buildings have health and safety issues that were very hard or impossible to resolve. Be sure all employees get annual performance reviews!!!"

What suggestions do you have for management?

"Satisfied!"

"Good place!"

"Extreme cold."

What suggestions do you have for management?
