Progressive institution- want to be a part of the Herd.
Pros: internationally progressive and great if your not a u.s. citizen
Cons: nepotism and a heightened culture of micro-management
You need to have patience, as you will need to accommodate international students. If you are an American, you take the back seat in most funding opportunities. You also have to take care of social interactions for your international co-workers, as they typically have no concept of independent work or social understanding. Getting commitments from international co-workers to complete jobs in an efficient and timely manner is difficult, but they do know how to perform mathematics. Returning home after a -15 degree day is the most enjoyable part of the job.
