    Great university to work for

    Research Student (Current Employee)

    ProsAt NDSU faculty is very friendly and they know a lot about the subject that you will be working on. Fargo is a nice place to stay in. Very quite environment. Employment scenario is not bad.

    ConsThe only problem with the city would be winter. It gets really cold in the winter. Add to that the wind which at times makes it hard for living.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI like working here at NDSU. I think they should promote more science and technology based faculty.
