    Pros

    Good support and benefits. Allows me to pursue my degree and live pretty comfortably compared to accruing debt. Provides templates for all handouts and materials.

    Cons

    Not a lot of guidance or training. Was pretty much thrown into teaching. Interferes with my research.

    Advice to Management

    Consider better training for teaching assistants so everyone has a better experience.

    Pros

    Lot's of other like-minded people
    Fun to work in a higher education setting with a lot of smart people around.
    Gorgeous campus with lots to do.

    Cons

    Too big to really feel like you make a difference
    There are so many departments, each covered by different IT, that you get bogged down in policies and trying to figure out the best place to send a client can be tedious.

    Advice to Management

    Stop growing and focus on organization and improve what you already have.

    Pros

    Good environment to study and work for your PhD.

    Cons

    Some professors (Research advisors) for PhD students are not professional enough. I have seen partiality shown by the professors among the students in his/her own group.

    Advice to Management

    You need to listen to the student as well.
