    Pros

    Great research experience, valuable mentorship and guidance, opportunity to work with real systems, great multi-cultural environment, fun place to work at.

    Cons

    Not many downsides to think of. Except it can take a long time to graduate from CAPS than when you do from other institutions, but the stipend is better than other places to make it little better.

    Nice place to work

    I have been working at Florida State University

    Pros

    Great flexible job, nice co-workers and other academic freedoms

    Cons

    Incredible salary inversion and the university is not doing much to counteract it; this is silly because the best people will leave and they'd still have to re-hire rookies at higher salaries.

    Pros

    Great professors, hard working students, and an inclusive community. The Career Center has been exceedingly helpful for me.

    Cons

    Large student body. Can sometimes feel lost; make sure you make an effort to get involved to make the campus smaller and to find your own community

    Pros

    Great campus and awesome faculty. There are a lot of resources for those working there and the educational resources are fantastic. Top notch libraries.

    Cons

    Location to other cities is rather far and very much a "college town". A much different setting and culture since it is a university.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep innovating and making things better!
