    I have been working at Iowa State University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Iowa State has given me a opportunity to grow as a student and as a professional. The faculty has always
    been very supportive of my journey thought grad school.

    Cons

    Although Ames is a nice town, it feels very isolated and I would like to be in a place that offers more outdoor entertainment after working hard all day.

    Interview Details

    Communicated through email. Interviewed for summer position on PHP, Java and SQL. It also involved questions on my previous experience and interest to learn new technologies.
