    I worked at Emory University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good classes, large research budget, name recognition, good stipend and benefits. It was also nice to have the opportunity to teach as a graduate research assistant.

    Cons

    Heavy workload, bureaucracy, preference is given to chemistry and medical students over the other sciences, though possibly for good reason.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that professors are more motivated and incentivised to teach well and care about their students, particularly tenured professors.
