    Pros

    Good support system for personal, professional, academic growth. Large graduate student community, good support staff. Some professors manage groups better than others, and there appears to be support for them to gain skills to do this. OK financial support for research and graduate students. Good medical/dental benefits for grad students. People know how to blow off steam and have a good time. Work hard/play hard

    Cons

    Few professors are effective lab managers, compensation is low, not a variety of benefits for grad students, takes advantage of foreign students' inability to be funded by most federal research training grants, not a lot of support for developing skills for careers outside of academia

    Advice to Management

    Professors need more help in managing labs--perhaps funds for lab management staff or additional leadership training would be good. Have fewer students per year and per lab, but increase support staff resources available to students and professors.

  6. Great school for dairy food science
