Wonderful experience at University of Chicago

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Chicago, IL

ProsUniversity of Chicago is a very famous university. And Chicago city is very beautiful and a wonderful place to live in.

ConsThe neighborhood, hyde park, is not a safe place, I would not recommend you walk alone in the middle of night.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep going and make neighborhood more safe. And students on campus need more fun, not just study and research all the time.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
