Access to education is outstanding
Not a livable salary for Graduate student

I can't think of a single good thing about this place.
Not a single administrative body at U Albany (or SUNY for that matter) takes complaints seriously. Had a serious, ongoing conflict with an abusive employee, and I was passed from office to office trying to find someone to handle the complaint. HR eventually took it, assured me they took actions against the offending party, and then later changed their story saying that wasn't the case. Unfortunately I didn't get anything in writing the first time around, as I naively trusted them to do their job. The whole process of merely seeking accountability was as traumatizing as the employee's abuse. Separate from this particular issue, I would also add that if you're coming here as a graduate student, expect a meager stipend that will barely allow you to make ends meet and that is well below the typical (also low) stipends that are offered by graduate programs across the country.

UAlbany Biological Sciences department is rapidly hiring new and innovative faculty. This is a wonderful, positive change as this brings more modern and cutting edge techniques to the university.
Graduate students are not paid a competitive wage.Continue reading

The facility is brand new and you have access to many advanced tools for semiconductor research.
Management is bloated. Countless Vice Presidents, Senior Vice Presidents, Associate Vice Presidents of innumerable different functions. Pay is not commensurate with other, more prestigious schools, in the area which the College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering is striving to be compared with. The research is directed primarily to support the activities of the companies who rent space here. You feel more like a low-rent employee of these companies doing research which isn't very exciting. The curriculum is not challenging and the degree does not hold weight outside of the consortium of companies operating here. The faculty is VERY green and does not have much experience directing graduate students.Continue reading

Efficient administration and friendly environment
Salaries can be higher. Graduate student employees should be exempted from fees for students charged by the university.
