    depends on the advisor

    Postdoctoral Researcher (Current Employee)

    ProsKAIST is a relatively stable place to work and you get a lot of support from the country. Students are generally smart.

    ConsWorking as a faculty member in KAIST is a different story. It is very competitive and working hours are very long.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt would be better if the institute is more independent from the president of KAIST. The president intervene in too many issues.
