    I have been working at University of Texas at Austin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    on the whole the University is great and its located in a great city. the toxicology side of the division within the college of pharmacy is doing some great cancer related research.

    Cons

    The pharmacology portion of the division within the college is poorly directed and the primary investigators with a few exceptions don't seem to really care about how their portion of the division is viewed. they don't seem to care about their students.

    Advice to Management

    do a better job of making the primary investigators accountable. emulate what the neuroscience department is doing.
