    I have been working at University of Delaware full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Excellent support of incoming graduate students. You don't have to choose an advisor right away as the university will support you for the first 6 months. - Professors are knowledgeable and friendly - Actually really good facilities and university institutions like CCM, IEC, and DBI

    Cons

    - Length of a graduate experience seems to be expanding. Have many colleagues who took >6 years to graduate - Social life leaves something to be desired. People are not active or very friendly. - Newark is not exactly a bustling hub for culture - Food options are mostly chains or the ubiquitous half bar/half restaurant establishments and located on a single street - Public transportation is infrequent or expensive to get to Philadelphia or Baltimore

    Pros

    - Good benefits - Collegial and smart colleagues - Reasonably good students

    Cons

    UD has some problems funding repairs and new buildings it needs (especially in CAS). A lot of money sunk into the south campus that doesn't benefit students and faculty who are not in health sciences. Could have been used to build on core strengths. Leadership can be mercurial, opaque.
