    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    1. Excellent campus and work environment.
    2. Ample on-site accomodation options available through on-campus hostels.
    3. Valuable learning opportunity for people seeking work experience.

    Cons

    Commuting to and from IIT Bombay was a problem; the nearest local railway station is a 20-minute walk away and it was on a different line than the one my house is near, hence I had to catch the bus.

    Advice to Management

    Please stop with the repeated and unnecessary renovations around the campus. Also, while the accomodation was good, I believe that it could be made better by funding the hostels more.
