I have been working at University of Wisconsin-Madison full-time (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.

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

    Pros

    Very strong academic research ranking in most of its disciplines. There are students from all over the world so you will not feel lonely.
    The city is nice too, very beautiful. Every time when I travel to other cities for business, I will miss Madison.

    Cons

    Long winter with snow. If you are OK with that (but most time in room), there is no complain.
    This is a public university. Due ti the poor economy, it funding has been reduced.
