    I have been working at North Carolina State University full-time

    Pros

    Biomedical Engineering Department is shared between UNC and NCSU and there are an abundance of resources and faculty that are able to be used.

    There are hidden fees (like ridiculous parking costs) that add up to a lot.

    Pay more attention to the fees being placed on graduate students.

    Pros

    Research level is absolutely high

    Cons

    Young Professors are hired based on their publication record and how much money they can bring. They are not hired based on their behaviour and relation with students. Selfish attitude is visible. High-level students (PhD and Postdocs) are mistreated and their skills are misused in those projects that are not related to them.
