    Pros

    Great professors and students to work with. Nice campus. Compensation is good although the living expense here in Miami is also high.

    Cons

    I spend most of the time on Marine campus, which is about 10 miles away from the main campus. Sometimes it feels like just a research center instead of university. It is good for research, but meanwhile feels like segregated.

    Pros

    Some areas are flexible, beautiful campus, access to many activities (lectures, exhibits, etc). Expectations are low - so if you do not like to work, its easy.

    Cons

    Culture holds much favoritism toward friends. Nepotism is very prominent, salary is low not many opportunties for growth. rules and expectations are not universal - different rule for different people, areas, depts.
