Pros

- Great community and support from adviser and other students who were also performing research.
 - Excellent feedback for giving research presentations, and on the ideas itself, from adviser and other researchers.

Cons

- Not so much a con, but the location might be difficult for some to adjust to. You will most likely have to use public transit or lease an apartment close to campus. Fortunately, several students sublease during the period making finding a sublease fairly easy.

    Pros

    They offer generous benefit packages for management level employees. Their matching retirement funding is a huge plus that is often over looked. The educational benefits for children and spouses (not for professional schools) keeps me from pursuing a private sector job.

    Cons

    Difficult to actually schedule/take classes for myself while working full time.

    Advice to Management

    It is vital for management to communicate, face to face with staff, on a regular basis. It will greatly improve productivity and provide time to work out issues before they become an HR nightmare.
