ProsRich school. Many seminars/workshops with great scholars. Lots of lunch seminars - you may not pay often for lunch!

ConsGreat scholars nearby - you might be overwhelmed easily. Some bureaucracy - took a month to get a ID card! Benefits are different per faculty/staff/postdoc/temporary. Parking is horrible.

Advice to Senior ManagementN/A - not familiar with upper management

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
