    I have been working at University of the Sciences in Philadelphia full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    As a graduate student I got to teach classes and labs, which helped me become the confidant speaker I am today. Teaching responsibility was not too restrictive, I had plenty of time to get my research done. I got paid a stipend and my tuition was covered. The graduate faculty is phenomenal in all departments I had interaction with. A lot of interesting research is being conducted.

    Cons

    Some of the research buildings and equipment are outdated. To be a successful job candidate upon entering the workforce, experience with more up to date equipment would be helpful.

    This isn't really a con but: If any future graduate students are reading this, you should expect to work late nights and weekends if you want to finish your PhD in a reasonable time. Getting a PhD is not supposed to be easy, it takes hard work.

    The school in recent years has put a lot of emphasis on Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, and Physician's Assistant programs and has sort of let research fall by the wayside. Research is an expensive endeavor and should be treated like a long term investment. Usciences has to be able to support research if they want to compete with larger universities like Temple, Jefferson, and Penn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build new research buildings. If you want top level grants to come in, facilities and equipment have to be able to support them. Allow for more fully funded graduate students.
