      Pros

      Very inclusive environment. Works a lot with small teams so you get to know the people you are working with very well. Every department works with each other to get the job done properly and efficiently.

      Cons

      Nothing bad related to working here. The only problem I have experienced is that the university does not provide very many resources to graduate students and do not treat graduate assistants all that well.
