    IT support work can vary a lot in degree of pain (e.g. non-existent or inappropriate resource to accomplish goals)
    Lack of leadership leads to continual doubt about priorities, expectations and so on

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Generally, researchers and PI's need support when they try to run big projects - team leadership training for example.

    Pros

    The UM community is open, diverse, and collaborative. There are many core facilities and support services including health & safety that promote ethical, robust, and translational research.

    The transportation services are useful for traveling between the various campuses.

    Cons

    The only downside that I have experienced is the expense of parking and the traffic from construction that leads to longer than expected commute times. It is manageable during off rush hour times.
