I have been working at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Incredible opportunities for collaborations across top rated departments. Very supporting, nurturing environment for graduate students in the beginning of the program. You can take courses from different departments, for instance, in addition to your major PhD program in Econ you can complete master in Statistics or Mathematics.

Cons

Top rated departments are very demanding to the quality of research. It is not a con in general, but the droprate 40% on some departments (after 5 years) should be announced in the very beginning of the program.

Advice to Management

Make the structure of the PhD to be more transparent. Do tell people what will happen to them if they are not becoming professors and going to the business sector instead...

    I worked at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, very wide range of lectures, performances, and events on campus. Excellent library with just about any book you could ever need.

    Cons

    Pretend to be supportive of minority faculty, staff, and students, but in reality, they are not. Campus is isolated

    Advice to Management

    Make sensitization training a priority, even if faculty do not think they need it. It could be implemented just like the annual required ethics online multiple choice exam.
