    Pros

    -World-class research environment with state-of-the-art facilities -broad range of expertise across many different departments -University with International reputation -Reasonable teaching load

    Cons

    -Lack of mentoring structure for junior faculty -many senior faculty members are backward-looking -opaque promotion mechanisms -over 8 years, got no raise for several years and only 1-2% raise in all but one of the other years, when the raise was ~5%.

    Advice to Management

    Increase mentoring and progress of junior faculty

    Cons

    Budget cuts to departments have created heavier work loads and greater expectations from the Department heads.

    Identify, celebrate and reward the talent that you have.
