    Pros

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

    Cons

    Low salary (in comparison to same position in the US), outdated bureaucratic system (purchasing equipment is cumbersome and slow.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 Management

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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.

    Pros

    Only 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.

    Cons

    Only 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.

  9. Great leadership, general IT employees show lack of experience.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Student 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 Management

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

  10. An interesting job....but with little place to grow
