    Pros

    Sometimes very interesting priojects in engineering research, if you work hard enough and fight the system you might really have an impact on new discoveries and technology

    Cons

    terrible managment and planning, major challenge implementing even the most simple or obvious changes. Feels like a massively incompetent goverment agency.

    At times the work enviorment was hostile, abusive and corrupt.

    Peter principle can be seen with many of the faculty and staff, senior employees are almost never fired no mater how utterly incompetent.

    Compensation is low, and they try to screw you at every turn if you become eligilbe for benfits.

    Very few people truly striving to do better, most talented staff/students move on quickly making turnover on projects very high

    Advice to Management

    Cut the dead weight, stop just looking out for your own skin and actually put some energy into enriching the program for students instead of just focusing on balancing the department budget to pay your own inflated salaries
