    Pros

    Good Research Atmosphere. People and colleagues are very friendly. The campus is not big, anything to do is very convennient.

    Cons

    Cleveland is close to Erie lake. So, in the winter, we often have heavy snow here. If you are living a little far away from the campus, you may have some suffering time in winter.

    Advice to Management

    Make some more efforts to advertise the university. The dinning room is a little big crowded during the lunch time, may open some new dinning room, or enlarge the current one.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Case Western Reserve University (Cleveland, OH) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I arrived at the PI's office on time. He mentioned I had a lot of good experience in a lot of labs but that was a bad sign. I countered with the last 2 jobs I had I had lost due to budgetary concerns. That I have had nothing but positive performance reviews. He countered with the recruiter said you lost your last job because you were pregnant. I of course said no as that is illegal. He then went on to ask other inappropriate questions such as are you sure you have enough time with a young baby at home, what does your husband do for a living, do you have access to childcare for after hours. He offered me the job but low-balled the salary (I do have a young baby so I must be desperate. He then told me I'd need to take the ARC training but he didn't think he should have to pay for that.
