    UW is a good place to be a graduate student

    Current Employee - Graduate Student Researcher  in  Seattle, WA
    Current Employee - Graduate Student Researcher in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at University of Washington full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They provide solid benefits. It is located on a beautiful campus in the middle of Seattle. Many of the faculty members are top notch.

    Cons

    Course load is a bit much compared to other programs. There should be better oversight as to who and how many people they let in to the program

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a more hands on approach with guiding graduate students through the program, don't just let them flounder.

    Current Employee - Senior Fellow in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at University of Washington full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    In the research labs, you'll find the best scientists and technicians anywhere. Superb resources, from our libraries, to user facilities and cooperative arrangements with FHCRC, SCCA, ISB and other local biomedical research institutions. Healthcare, retirement benefits are very good.

    Cons

    As a public institution, funding and job security are not what they once were. Space is at a premium, although new buildings are being built. Salaries are public-sector, so generally lower than industry equivalent jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight for better, more consistent funding!
