    Pros

    Beautiful city, good infrastructure, excellent people around.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the schools does not like that temporarz emplozees such as PhD students or PostDocs enter in decision making. The school is far far away in making research assistants readz for the job market.

    I have been working at EPFL

    Pros

    - Top quality professors
    - lots of freedom in research
    - very good quality of career center (seminars, round tables, CV correction)
    - great possibilities in industry and academia upon completion of PhD

    Cons

    - One of the best universitites in Europe for completing the PhD
    - nothing really negative to say about EPFL

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It depends very strongly on the Dean, how priorities of investment and employment of new professors are done. Would be nice to have this more egalized.
