Is there a platform/forum where (phd) students or post-docs can share their good or bad experiences with their supervisors?

    Aside from the obvious issue that this comes dangerously close to washing one's dirty underwear in public, I think even for big labs the sample size per supervisor will be way too small for this platform to be useful. – xLeitix Aug 23 '17 at 15:15

    There certainly are lots of questions here about dealing with 'bad' experiences, with supervisors or otherwise. It would not surprise me if there was a forum somewhere that specialized in it. But, what do you want out of it? Validation, solutions, just to vent? – Jon Custer Aug 23 '17 at 15:52
  • What about ratemyprofessor? It's not specific to this, but I would think it could include this. – aparente001 Aug 24 '17 at 0:23
  • @aparente001 yeah, that's one I just found yesterday ... not sure it works also for phd/post-docs – jjrr Aug 24 '17 at 13:20
  • I am also not sure about this but I don't see why one couldn't post there. – aparente001 Aug 24 '17 at 19:07
