    Toxic Work Environment: No Action Taken

    Pros

    Benefits, incredible research, fantastic facilities, and inspirational history.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment not confronted by administration after various employees are forced to leave their jobs due to the said work environment. This comes after the UMN made the news for an abusive professor who was, not fired, but punished following a separate and damning case of abuse. I am currently finding support speaking with a grad student who was forced to leave due to the viciously homophobic treatment of a superior. — HR and Chairperson exceptionally well informed. The UMN took no action.
