    Pros

    Yale is a world renowned academic institution. Graduating from here provides an opportunity to work in good companies.

    Cons

    New Haven is not a very good place for living. It's not very safe in the night.

    Advice to Management

    If the Engineering Department could be a little bit bigger it would be better.

    Pros

    My experience is as PhD student:
    Working with some of the most brilliant & innovative professors in the world
    Lots of resources for advanced research in most fields
    Great stipend and benefits guaranteed for 5 years.
    Great academic network and alumni network

    Cons

    As with other grad schools: it's very important to find an advisor you enjoy working with or enduring a long PhD program is difficult. For smaller departments, its important to find someone who is a suitable match before you apply.

    Pros

    Good work-life balance
    Leads really care about you
    Get to do really interesting work, and learn as you go!

    Cons

    It can be hard to balance a full schedule with work, and it can be tough if you're not put on a team which you like (I am on a team that I do like)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing!
