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

    Pros

    It has such nice libraries.

    Cons

    HUGE gap in academic level between undergraduate & graduate bodies.
    Very hard to find smart, intellectually challenging people (as the majorities are undergrad).
    The campus is the downtown of the city, it is pretty crowded, parking space is not assigned to even professors.
    TA workload is HUGE as compared to other research schools.
    Stipend significantly smaller as compared to other research schools.
    Inter-disciplinary research opportunity is rare.
    Majority of population seem to have had little exposure to non-white ethnic minorities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The school administrators seriously need to bring more academic, innovative atmosphere, removing party school culture.
