Pros

The university of Michigan has great work life balance. They provide good benefits and the people are wonderful. A great place to work.

Cons

The employment process is a bit slow. There is always a lot of red tape to get things done. If you are a grant funded position, there is always a little bit of nervousness about job stability.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, caring environment in many departments

    Cons

    Interests of the school are not particularly well aligned with those of students (undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral), as is the case at all research universities. Recent overemphasis (also the case at most universities) on translational/practical research instead of high-risk basic research. In humanities departments, poor outlook for graduate students and researchers (also the case at nearly all universities).

    Advice to Management

    Consider the demand for graduates in a given field when determining how many students to admit. Otherwise you will develop a reputation for not caring about your students.
