-) Support for graduate students, including additional fellowships and conference funding
-) Sets high expectations and pushes you to meet them
-) Extremely friendly and supportive environment, making you look forward to working each day

Cons-) Review for teachers is limited to student evaluations and a single in-class observation, making it difficult to receive feedback and react to it
-) Somewhat a "teach them to swim by throwing them in the deep end" situation
