    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Medical University of Vienna full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Salary good to average. Teaching opportunities. Ease to collaborate with other institutes. Good funding for few means usually lot of research freedom.

    Cons

    Head professors have extreme power and destroy many young careers. abuse of power and bullying common.No career opportunities or contract extension if not a chosen one (nowadays only women, austrian or fully integrated, and obedient) from all powerful head. Old school hierarchy. Disorganised administration and bureaucracy. Some institutes and people are so entrenched with no hope of ever evolving.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce power of heads. Require evaluation of heads and follow up on complaints. Support young people. Look internationally and try to improve yourself. Support proper career paths and options for everyone.

    Pros

    36 days of holidays per year, flexibility of working time. Many many personal development and soft skill courses provided for free by the employer. Great social security and health care option. Great possibilities of interdisciplinary collaboration within the institution and outside with other universities and institutes as well as companies. Absolute freedom in the research field.

    Cons

    Working with 6 months contract and being renewed all the time for almost 5 years, instead of getting a fixed contract. No future job perspective. No means of reporting on the misconduct of the employer. Possibility of being mobbed and discriminated. Mafia-like structure of the management. Personal judgments of the management is usually affecting your career.

    Advice to Management

    provide better means for the employees to be able to report on the misbehavior of their supervisors.
