    I have been working at Wayne State full-time

    Pros

    The Professors are excellent, and the funding is available for all years in which taking classes is mandatory.

    Cons

    Advisers to PhD students are removed from the health and well-being of their students. It does not seem to be a priority.

    Advice to Management

    There should be wellness check-ups with Advisers, and a more malleable schedule to foster a healthier work-life balance. Rather than creating a curriculum which is centered on week to week objectives, a more personal and student-centered approach should be adopted.
