    I worked at Potsdam Universität full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Potsdam is a beautiful city close to Berlin. The university offers sufficient support for research though not the best in Germany.

    Cons

    Outdated and complicated administrative procedures, facilities not so comfortable, very few opportunities for permanent contracts (though this applies equally to other German universities).

    Current Employee - Chief Information Officer in Potsdam (Germany)

    I have been working at Potsdam Universität full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It's a good project, but you need to have a product, before starting the work for the incubator.
    If you don't have a product, you may risk to end the contract without the possibility of founding a startup.
    People are all nice.

    Cons

    Lacking of control, technical support and feedback. Badly organized, because you need to wait a lot for orders of computers and materials.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Control the mentor/stipendiant relation, since most of cases, the stipendiants need also technical support, not only business help.
