Pros

Intellectual community, neighborhood oriented, lots of opportunities, congenial co-workers, beautiful campus, ability to move to different positions on campus, great students

Cons

low pay, the neighborhood can be dicey, transportation options to campus are limited--depending on where you live, very academic and can be a little boring

Advice to Management

I noticed far too many disgruntled academics who never completed their Ph.D.'s in mid-management positions. Some are wonderful at their jobs, but others breed a lot of negativity/doom/gloom that doesn't reflect that university.

    Pros

    University of Chicago is a very famous university. And Chicago city is very beautiful and a wonderful place to live in.

    Cons

    The neighborhood, hyde park, is not a safe place, I would not recommend you walk alone in the middle of night.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going and make neighborhood more safe. And students on campus need more fun, not just study and research all the time.
