Pros

Very good plasma physics groups. Plasma physics at Uiowa is one of the best in USA. You do really good research and have collaborations with the best in the world.

Cons

You need to work hard to meet your goals, and that is not a con. Cannot think of any cons. You have to do your work fast and publish.

    I have been working at University of Iowa part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Set hours, weekends off, incredible benefits package

    Cons

    Experience highly variable depending upon direct supervisor. Research PIs have no training in management of people. This is been a consistent problem throughout my 10 year career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please require research Principal Investigators to comply with basic management trainings and allow employees to rate their supervisors in an anonymous way. Without this option, they truly have no voice.
