    I worked at Syracuse University

    Pros

    It's a great school filled with a great academic staff. The students are about half good, so that's better than all bad.

    Cons

    There are a lot of HR requirements, programs to participate in, tasks to complete.

    I worked at Syracuse University

    Pros

    It is a research University setting, with both new aggressive young professors and older more sedentary professors. There can be opportunities to travel and the community is generally quite good.

    Cons

    Being a research University setting has it's draw backs too. The professors can be arbitrarily demanding at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    improve career pathways and improve help with next steps for graduating students (grad students).

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Syracuse University full-time

    Pros

    The graduate school looks after it's students. The benefits are numerous for the general student such as access to many clubs across campus, computing resources, quality libraries, etc.

    Cons

    The teaching load of a physics graduate student is much too high. There is very little time for your own work. When asking friends in other physics departments around the country, it almost always seems their load is less. In general the physics department does not care for the well being of their graduate students and the general atmosphere in the department leans towards negative, depending on which group you work for.

    Doesn't Recommend
