ProsGreat retirement and vacation benefits, access to top-quality health care, flexible work schedule, diverse workforce, opportunities for professional development, friendly environment

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't cut soft money salaries when they are supporting research projects that bring in more money each year to their departments and are self-supporting.
