    I have been working at Iowa State University full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Its an extremely safe place to live. People are very nice and friendly. The professors are amazing in terms of personality. Not a lot of distraction, so I can fully focus on my research. The university transit system is very good.

    Cons

    The weather is extreme during summer and winter. Not a lot of things to do in the town which advantageous but boring at times.

    Advice to Management

    I find the place quite peaceful. One advantage will be to spend more money on research. Provide more amenities to students. Allocate more space to undergraduates to promote collaborative learning.
