    Pros

    I enjoyed the opportunity of working with world class scholars, and NU really trained me to think critically and bring high standards to my craft.

    Cons

    NU's bureaucracy is often obtuse and unresponsive to the needs of its employees. They are more fixated on being like Ivy League schools and their reputation than the experience of their graduate students.

    Pros

    Great science, outstanding faculty, excellent students, superb reputation

    Cons

    Upper management is largely clueless about how faculty directors manage personnel and funds. Certain faculty get "rockstar" status based on their scientific accomplishments and can misuse federal funds without intervention from the university leadership.

    Advice to Management

    VPs are usually arising from within the ranks of faculty. Hence, impartial oversight does not take place.
