    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at University of Connecticut full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent faculty team, wide spread choice of majors and minors, nice campus and elite basketball team

    Cons

    lack of state of the art instrument especially in semiconductor facilities, surging housing price on and off campus

    Advice to Management

    give more funding to semiconductor facility, build a independent complex facility and put MBE, lithography tool on the first floor instead of the 3rd floor in a chemistry building.
