Pros

There is a lot of opportunity to get involved in cutting edge research that interests you. There are also many opportunities to get involved with the community and in school. There are many offices on campus that are very helpful.

Cons

Required classes are very research based. You definitely have to find and take classes that are applicable in industry on your own.

    I worked at Northwestern University full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A great deal of support from other members in the field I was working in at Northwestern. Great access to necessary instrumentation for the most part. Fantastic opportunities for outside lab activities. The Evanston campus is far enough away from Chicago to be pretty relaxed and safe, while students have the option to ride the L into the city for fun. Frequent events for graduate students to get out of lab.

    Cons

    The school always seems to be competing with UofC and coming up a bit short. The health insurance offered graduate students could be improved. Greater monetary compensation would make living in Chicago more reasonable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the focus on events for graduate students to get free food, mingle etc. Up the stipend levels.

    work is very satisfying, working with students, alumni, faculty and other staff.

    Cons

    pay is adequate, could be better. Too much work and need to hire more staff. Faculty seem to get abundant resources.
