    Pros

    UF seems to have an endless amount of talented researchers. There seems to always be someone you can learn something from. UF's reputation helps open doors at times.

    Cons

    As a grad student, you're pretty much stuck unless you have your principal investigator's permission to do anything. You can't go learn a technique if your boss doesn't think it will benefit his/her lab. It's more along the lines of "yes, you can grow as a scientist, but only if what you learn helps me too."

    Advice to Management

    Treat your grad students like people. Support them. Help them grow and do better. We work well over the 20-40 hours that our contracts say we're supposed to work for small stipends.
