    I have been working at IIT Kharagpur full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the best technical setups, labs and helps. Opportunity to work with some of the best profs of India and best place to learn and grow knowledge and publish.

    Cons

    The place is Kharagpur, a relatively small town, you can not get the facilities of other metropolitan cities here. So, not much life other than within the campus. It is a more undergraduate focused environment like every other IITs.

    Advice to Management

    Administration is quite dynamic. Only thing I can ask for is availability of single-occupancy room for research scholars and option to switch Hall of residence too.
