Pros

You get to find people from several countries, which gives you the opportunity to get some insights about their cultural influences and also learn to be more open minded.

Cons

Language barrier might be a difficulty in interacting with new comers. Sometimes even with senior people. But it can be worked out.

Advice to Management

Please do your best effort to avoid raising tuition and incorporating from time to time additional fees. Keep up the good work, otherwise.

    The work environment is laid back. Everyone is very friends and nice. They require you to participate in professional development. Work at your own pace, and the workshops are great!

    Some people are too laid back. Makes it hard to get work done sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Care a little more about work.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    You get to live in Miami, the campus is nice, the weather is warm, the education is really top notch but the university gets little recognition for it's quality (and difficulty) of education.

    Cons

    They want you to stay broke, the cost of living in this city makes it difficult to live on the salary you are given, the professors can be difficult to work with, not too different than being a grad student anywhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Help the students, they work hard and have no life and get little for it. I have never been more depressed as a grad student than I have ever been in my life. The universities funding problem is exacerbated by the spending to expand infrastructure, but they cut classes.
