    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Ann Arbor, MI
    Current Employee - Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Ann Arbor, MI

    I have been working at University of Michigan full-time (more than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    If you are not a US citizen or a resident then there are one too many restrictions and paperwork. Frustrating.
