Broadly speaking a fantastic place for academic research in science and engineering.

Assistant Professor (Current Employee) Houston, TX

ProsVery research-friendly environment.
Pretty agile administration for what concerns grants and facilities.
Great undergraduate students who make the teaching part quite enjoyable, facilitated also by the small class size.
Benefits are reasonably good.
Houston is quite a great city, though not pretty, and it has been getting better noticeably.
It may sound trite, but cost of living, housing, are significantly cheaper than probably any other large city.

ConsBenefits are not as good as one would think.
Real estate market has gone up quite steeply in the central parts of the metropolitan area ("inside the loop").
In the last five years there seems to have been an explosion of the size of the administration, while at the same time faculty hires have not enjoyed the same expansion.
I have lost count of how many vice-provost, associate-dean, and permutations, have been created! Never a good sign.

    Graduate Student at Statistics

    Graduate Student (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    I have been working at Rice University full-time for more than a year

    Pros: Small class size; comparable larger attention; Rice is a really small university with no more than 6000 student and half is the graduate level students. Therefore,… Cons: Limited options in research directions; Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
