    I have been working at University of Pennsylvania full-time

    Pros

    Work-life balance, intensive, stressful, many extra curricular activities and many resources available, big classes which do not take attendance

    Cons

    Very intensive and competitive, very hard to do well in all classes, grade deflation, professors do not teach very well in higher level classes

    Advice to Management

    Look after student's mental health by providing more resources. But very helpful in general and understanding of students' needs
