    Pros

    Teaching at the university pays well but it really depends on the faculty. e.g. in Business & Economics, rallying for better conditions and pay (e.g. getting paid for time spent on training) is commonplace, but almost unheard of in Science.

    Cons

    Depending on the discipline you might often meet very arrogant academics who think that their qualifications give them the right to treat you in a condescending manner.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest more involvement with unions, but as with companies, that is not likely to happen.


  2. Nice and relax working environment
