      Pros

      Has one of the few robotics labs in the US. Lots of robots to learn and program. Focused on software side of robotics that is largely needed for product building.

      Cons

      Does not cover mechanical side of robotics. Course structure is quite limited and does not have many options to broaden the learning.

      Pros

      Many of the people who work at RIT are great coworkers.

      Cons

      The administration frequently engages in a bait and switch practice- they give you a promotion or more responsibility with no additional compensation after promising otherwise, and then claim you must do the work because it’s now in your (new) job description. It’s deceitful. RIT believes that one employee should do the job of 4 people and be paid half of one persons salary. RIT often makes claims related to money but never take on suggestions to save money that don’t involve hurting employees, and will overspend on anything that isn’t salary.

      Prepare to be used and thrown away

      Pros

      RIT gives you decent vacation time.

      Cons

      Budgets are continually cut and underfunded. RIT counts on the fact that faculty and staff do not want to fail the students. Thus, budgets can be underfunded and employees will just work harder to keep from failing the students. This only carries so far. Once you start to burnout, you will be discarded. Raises get skipped or minimized for any excuse. Benefits keep getting cut. Money is spent on vanity projects for administration and the board of trustees. RIT claims to value diversity but tends to retaliate against any women or PoC who report problems.
