    I have been working at University of Wisconsin-Madison full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The University of Wisconsin-Madison is a good university to get a PhD from. It has a strong research environment with good training and collaboration opportunities between departments (CALS is particularly good!). Professors and staff are knowledgeable and experienced. The overall Wisconsin community is friendly.

    GREAT health benefits! It's worth it to study here just for the benefits!

    Cons

    My experience here is as a graduate student. You basically have no life outside of your research. Your work hours never end. The stipend is minimal.

    Wisconsin is cold, so does the school feel to me...

    Current Employee - Research Assistant in Madison, WI

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

    Pros

    It is a big school with a lot of intelligent students and professors.

    Cons

    The administration is so bureaucratic! As an international student, I needed some help on my tax return. The pay roll office, international student service, and my department office pushed me to each other, without offering any useful help. Even worse, the pay roll office once replied to me on the phone that "we can too many of Asians on campus", and cannot help every single one of you!"
