    Pros

    For a postdoc the pay is quite good. It's an international atmosphere and many of the labs are top notch. There is money and the equipment is usually well-maintained.

    Cons

    If you don't know German you will feel isolated in the community. Labs tend to be a bit isolated and there doesn't seem to be too much interaction between labs even within the same building.

    Advice to Management

    Of course each professor has a different style so it will entirely depend on which lab you join as to how you evaluate your experience. In our department I felt the senior management had difficulty dealing with conflict and with communicating changes that were going to be made. They especially had a hard time hiring new professors.

    I had a phone call and an interview over Skype. I had to present my general research plan for the nex few years. Besides that it was mostly small talk.
