    Pros

    Good university with good people

    Cons

    Too many students in a class
    professors are trained to "weed out" instead of "teach"
    Students = money (thats a university for you) Try a small college for a good education.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking in students and giving them a base education.

    Start training people for the real world... think "apprenticeship".... And... Bring businesses in to hire students.... make your education worth something more than a piece of paper.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Collaborative atmosphere and everyone willing to help teach
    Flexible hours but long
    Intellectually challenging

    Cons

    Had to wait a very long time to get my Ph.D.
    Ph.D. isn't worth nearly as much for a career as what it used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Try harder to accommodate your worker's future career goals.
