Pros

Great place for research and science, top rated School of Medicine, bright scientists and researchers.

Cons

Bad and wasteful administration, stiff policies especially for foreigners, salary freeze of scientists supported by federal and private fund but not the administrative staff because they are in union.

    Pros

    Great group of people in many departments. Create opportunities for new concepts (not always approved). Good recognition program and events to recognize special occasions, milestones, and work excellence.

    Cons

    Managers unfair to people they just don't like and never give them a chance. Upper management has experience issues when coming to reviews (not knowing aspects of employee work). Some evidence (not personal, but to former co-workers) of blackballing of former employees to new opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Fairness and employees rights need to be paramount.

  2. High pressure, not supportive team, no freedom
