Country style life, slow quality research and good friends

Research Scientist/Graduate Student (Current Employee) Riverside, CA

ProsFriendly community. Most faculty members value work/family balance and are reasonable with flexible time schedules. Small town and laid back style life in Riverside. Possible to work with emeritus professors who has knowledgeable senses, good ideas and valuable social connections.

ConsThe classes/training offered are very poor for new gradstudents, either on teaching or techniques necessary to research. Usually takes loads of time to search for resources to learn from due to the small group and lack of talents. Undergraduate students in this school are very poorly-motivated and too party-ish to teach, therefore be prepared to be frustrated when it comes to teaching. Management from the advisors are less efficient due to work/life balance. Do not come if you desire speedy growth under intensive competitions and sharp talents.

Advice to Senior ManagementPut more attention to research funding rather than outreach. Try to organize classes vital to gradstudents' learning and developments. Otherwise, be more generous to let employees to go to outside workshop/meetings/courses/conferences. It will attract more talents once a nice group is formed and start helping each other.
