    The academic community fosters innovation because there is a very open policy on campus. Most faculty and researchers have open doors. Some of the top experts in computer science and engineering are located here and relatively easy access to them is invaluable.

    Cons

    As a graduate student, the downsides are the same when compared with other graduate students in other universities.

    Value the graduate students more.

    Pros

    Great environment and accessible and rewarding location. Availability for flexible hours

    Juggleing academics and work can be challenging at times. Also, those who are offcampus may find it slightly more challenging as all shifts must be completed on campus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a more structured management of employees and streamline eboard schedule.
