    I worked at Carleton University

    Pros

    Lots of variety in courses taught.
    State of the art equipment.
    Lots of smart people to discuss ideas with.
    Eagerness to improve.

    Cons

    Far from downtown.
    The ME building is old and needs upgrades.
    The transit system doesn't operate very well. Buses are always over capacity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should improve the public transit system so that it is easier to get to and from campus. Also, it would be nice if campus had designated bike lanes.

    Pros

    manager gets resources needed, then stays out of the way so that professionals can get the job done right. No micromanaging!

    Cons

    not in the top league as far as research universities go, so not much depth in terms of on-site collaboration, but so what- research is now global via the Internet, so this is no longer much of a hindrance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, know when to step in to get resources for your people, and when to step out so they can get the job done.
