I have been working at Iowa State University full-time (More than 3 years)
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.
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.
After submitting application materials, I had a skype interview followed by an on-campus interview that lasted fr 2-2.5 days - it had a job talk, several one-one meetings, and 2-3 meetings with search committee and other groups.
