    Pros

    I like Poly because it's a small and familiar environment. In some areas, the quality of the courses and research is really high. It can be a good place to do a PhD if you find the right professor. For new professors I highly recommend this school, since it is a fast growth school.

    Cons

    SInce Poly merged with NYU there are some issues with bureaucracy and organization, but nothing that can not be overcome. If you are looking for PhD, it depends on what would you like to do. It is a small school so also the human and technical resources are focused on cerain topics. Not every area of research can be deepen in the same way.

    Good place to work as a researcher in the ece dept.

    Pros

    Good and friendly environment. No too many distractions. Usually your mentor helps substantially with guidance. You do all the work though. Good location, many trains go around the area. The person in charge of the ece dept keep everything on check and things never go wrong with her in the leading. I hope the dept does not change with nyu coming into the picture.

    Cons

    The cons come into play when you deal with HR or other departments. The cafeteria on campus does not serve great, eatable food. Only the Tuesday, Thursday pasta is good.

    Pros

    Smart people doing important and interesting things, and very happy to share and discuss their work and ideas.

    Cons

    Salaries a bit lower than comparable elsewhere but with the NYU merger should probably come up to average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe peel back some layers of administration and bureaucracy to further let the academics decide the best routes.
