    I have been working at Boston College full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The (Biology) department is small so there isn't much intradepartmental collaboration but everyone has been exceptionally nice and its location in the greater Boston area has ensured excellent access to cutting edge resources across the city.

    Cons

    A greater diversity of class offerings at the graduate level would be excellent. Often time courses felt like extended exposes on a faculty member's area of research, only loosely tied into the declared course goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tighten up the classes available to students and have a more open discussion about the future of computational labs within the department.
