    I have been working at Clemson University full-time (Less than a year)

    Most positions have a good work/life balance. 37.5 hours per week is great compared to what I worked in private industry.

    Cons

    Not a lot of support from HR, unclear expectations in my current role (I don't think every department is like this)

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

    Pros

    Great research opportunities, the chance to work with expert professors, exposure to companies at CU-ICAR.

    Cons

    Common Ph.D. student woes including low pay, especially for the Greenville area, high workload and little respect by the faculty. The egotistical nature of the faculty makes it difficult to get things done when interdepartmental resources need to be shared.

    Advice to Management

    Let professors run their research projects, not the departments as they are not trained in management. Hire an intermediary to ensure the department is being effectively and efficiently run.

    YLI has many camps with the primary mission to better the lives of children.
