Stellar academics and charming atmosphere

Graduate Teaching Assistant (Current Employee) Minneapolis, MN

ProsGreat academic atmosphere, relaxed vibe mixed with prestigious academics. If you interested in doing challenging research with first rate professors but in a place with a little less of a competitive atmosphere, the U of M is a great place for you.

ConsUniversity of Minnesota deserves a better name than it has. It's a top ten public university, and should be recognized as such.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep focusing on bringing in the best students, whether with fellowship or scholarship offers or by other means. The quality of research done at the university will determine the quality of its future.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
