    I have been working at University of Iowa

    Pros

    The medical insurance is superb and you have access to the College of Dentistry for low cost care. The Microbiology Department has good research benefits like a fully stocked biochem storeroom, an enzyme core and microscopy facility. Because it is a college town going out for drinks is inexpensive, though the crowds can be rowdy.

    Cons

    The weather in the winter is abysmal. The town is on the small side and doesn't offer much in variety of food or experience. The population of the people working at the University is almost homogenously Caucasian so there is not much diversity. The nearest large city is Chicago at ~3 hours to the east.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We understand the budget crisis, but cutting scheduled raises for employees paid off of federal grants cannot help the budget.

    I have been working at University of Iowa

    Pros

    Professors and students are very nice and smart. The housing price is very low compared to a lot of other places.

    Cons

    Most of time you got to be in the home or in the office. Otherwise, there are no too many other thing you can do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the recent economic downturn, it is tough for everybody in the university but the management can do better to protect their greatest assets-professors, researchers and students.
