Pros

UM has excellent employee benefits, including free tuition, health etc. Being in the WDC metro area also has its advantages, such as proximity to museums, activities and a choice of three airports.

Cons

very painful to get any work done with the bureaucracy - four set of signatures to purchase a lab notebook, excessive overheads (bring in funding and give away 60% in overheads - wonderful), 80% of the buildings are antiques, with antique facilities, things are always breaking.
