An interesting balance between academics and 'reality'

Research Assistant (Current Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsThe U of C has a huge number of incredibly intelligent people, most of whom have a strong interest in their field and are very nice.

ConsThough the people are very intelligent, they do not practice 'logical thinking' and 'human interaction' very well. There is a lot that goes wrong because everyone is thinking too far above the problem at hand.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
