    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 ManagementAdvice

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