Great please to do research

Graduate Research Assistant (Current Employee)
Baltimore, MD

ProsFew distractions. Very comprehensive university services, especially library service and gym. Most colleagues have very high academic standings.

ConsVery small campus consists of small departments. A lot of research directions are simply absent. Few recreational (other than the gym) options. No good restaurants nearby and the security situation deteriorates only 2 blocks from campus. To put it simple: lots of work but no life.

Advice to Senior ManagementA large number of professors which serves as the backbone for the research of this institution are retiring in the near future. There are, however, not enough effort to recruit new people to ensure a smooth transition.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
