"I worked at The University of Kentucky for over a year and a half. The town is wonderful. The group I worked with was going through restructuring and had financial issues at the time, so the environment was not stable for the long term (though this may have changed since I left). At the time, it seemed that people were treading water or going through the motions, in need of a long-term plan."
