    I have been working at University of Connecticut Health Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    A very collaborative environment and a great PhD program in Immunology. You get to learn a lot from students and all the professors. Flow cytometry facility and all core facilities are easily accessible and greatly managed. So its very easy to get to use instruments needed for your work.

    Cons

    Projects in all the labs may not be directly applicable to human work or their may not be any disease connection to your work. Which can come in your way when you are competiting with other students after PhD to find jobs. But research done is sound and good and one gets to learn lot.

    Advice to Management

    None at this point.

    Pros

    UCONN is a union shop. Difficult to meet the 90 day probation period but if you do you are in for life.

    Because it is a union shop there are many employees that are there that shouldn't be. Difficult to terminate substandard employees in a union shop.

    Wouldn't help.
