Pros

University housing is incredibly flexible if your an RA, they understand you are a student first and academics are your number 1 priority.

Cons

Training is composed of 10% icebreakers 10% lunch 60% information you probably already knew and only 20% information you need to know.

Advice to Management

Treat your RA's like adults.

    Pros

    The scientific expertise of the professors and researchers is top notch. KU is an excellent place to learn how to be a great scientist (at least in the department I was in). Supervisors always provided good feedback and were open to suggestions.

    Cons

    The parking department is horrible. You are expected to spend a lot of time in the lab, producing results. Work life balance is not a priority for a lot of people, but that doesn't mean its not attainable either. Some of the tenured professors should not be allowed to teach.

    Advice to Management

    Review the guidelines for granting tenure and revoking tenure. There are more than a few professors who have no business teaching.

  2. First line of defense.
