    Current Employee - Research Technician Associate in Ann Arbor, MI

    I have been working at University of Michigan full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The UM community is open, diverse, and collaborative. There are many core facilities and support services including health & safety that promote ethical, robust, and translational research.

    The transportation services are useful for traveling between the various campuses.

    Cons

    The only downside that I have experienced is the expense of parking and the traffic from construction that leads to longer than expected commute times. It is manageable during off rush hour times.
