Senior management lacks ability to hire people using technical skill sets that match what the role is

I worked at TEES

Pros

College station is a great location (between Austin & Houston), A&M great university to be part of.

Cons

Tenure rules even in the technology realm. People that have no real work experience with technology and may be book smart are in leadership positions - but do not know how to apply this knowledge to people and technology roles.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do RFP's for custom software solutions. Somebody needs to be asking questions like is the solution really scalable? How much will this cost the University down the road to maintain? For technology, hire more vendors. Look in the local communities for local talent - don't hire people from outside the USA - and pay extra money for Visa process etc..or feel compelled to keep people because they are friends or have worked with a hiring manager for a long time. Doesn't mean that they are more qualified. More scrutiny in hiring process as well as better planning for technical projects.

    Pros

    working in graduate research labs is same as everywhere else. it depends on your advisor. Lots of skills can be developed.

    Cons

    work experience here depends on how guiding your advisor is and how motivated you are to work produce results. hence no special downsides.
