ProsGood benefits, safe neighborhood, tons of facilities nearby, good cultural attractions on campus, stimulating, smart colleagues. Also, the campus is beautiful.

ConsEverything is overmanaged and mismanaged, with nepotism and corruption reigning supreme. People try their best, but the structure of the University often does not allow for effective communication, cooperation, and lacks broad direction.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
