    Great place for overseas postdoc position

    Postdoctoral Researcher (Current Employee)
    Jerusalem (Israel)

    ProsBeautiful campus, relaxed atmosphere, top rate science, incredible city.

    ConsLow salary (in comparison to same position in the US), outdated bureaucratic system (purchasing equipment is cumbersome and slow. No credit cards issued to postdocs for lab related purchases).

    Advice to Senior ManagementSee cons and fix them. Also, allow PIs to pay postcos according to their own considerations. It is their money!

    I enjoyed my Graduate studies at the Hebrew university.

    Graduate Student (Current Employee)
    Jerusalem (Israel)

    ProsThe Hebrew university is a very interesting place to work at with many opportunities. I did my graduate studies in the field of life sciences.

    ConsThe salary is very low for a graduate student.
    Furthermore, Work / Life balance is not respected - as a graduate student in Science you are expected to work very hard, not allowing time to make a supplementary income.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    graduate student

    Research Assitent (Current Employee)
    Jerusalem (Israel)

    ProsOnly concerning givat ram and the natural science faculty,the hebrew U probably has the highest level in israel of research in the field of natural science. there are a lot of research groups in the forefront of their field.

    ConsOnly concerning Givat ram, very little social events and interaction. nothing that really bonds the students together. It feels like working in a place of business rather then having the camaraderie of a university.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great leadership, general IT employees show lack of experience.

    IT General Helpdesk (Former Employee)
    Jerusalem (Israel)

    ProsGreat managerial staff, cutting edge IT technologies for a university. Friendly people always willing to lend a helping hand. Great!

    ConsStudent employees are generally not knowledgable in the field. Verh basic questions may often go unanswered, and practical knowledge differes greatly amongst the staff body.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to advertise the position a bit more, and reach a point where everyone being hired is IT oriented.
