Advice to ManagementAdvice

As in most universities, the performance for professors is evalueated on the publication and proposal outputs and not always on good skills. So if you understand the rules of the game (publish or perish), you will be successful.
Also the pay scale is not even, someone who has been a long time at the university can make less than someone else with less experience, freshly hired for the same title and in the same department.
