    Student at University of Miami

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsA few great professors, beautiful campus. College of Engineering has very smart students and professors.

    ConsThe coursework, degree direction and choices of classes are very bureaucratically organized, not too much freedom.
    Also, some class topics are a little out of date.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
