    I worked at Case Western Reserve University (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Many intelligent, accomplished, and capable faculty who care about making a meaningful and lasting difference in the world. Secretaries are the glue of the departments.

    Cons

    Student affairs does very little (or next to nothing) to mediate conflict between graduate students and faculty. Make sure you have a good advisor to help protect you. No ombudsmen.

    Advice to Management

    Get better health insurance for graduate students, a plan in which we don’t have to pay both the co-pay and the coinsurance. We already make barely livable wages.
