    I worked at University of Connecticut full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The campus was beautiful! Most professors are very nice and helpful. They're many organizations and clubs to be a part of.

    Cons

    The tuition to go there is very high. Especially if you are an outside student. And since the campus is so big, it is difficult to meet new people, because everyone is running around heading to class. My advice: join a club.

    Advice to Management

    nothing really.

    The university has and will try to cut amenities.

    Pros

    Freedom to work and execute my job, working with faculty and staff to access grants.

    Cons

    The University is very stove piped and competitive between departments and professors to the detriment of their relationships and opportunities with industry.

    Advice to Management

    Provide incentives to management and faculty to work in cross functional teams and value what industry has to offer the university beyond money, like real world problems that align to market or societal needs. These improve the quality of the graduate student's education.
