    I have been working at Arizona State University full-time

    Pros

    Working in an academic setting is energizing, exciting and challenging. There are many ways to learn new things. Some of the people I work with are great.

    Cons

    Crow's philosophy of 'do more with less' - simply means 'hire fewer staff members while growing the rest of the organization.' That means staff carry a huge burden - often executing the tasks of several jobs. Few, and very small, pay raises. In our group, we are managed by faculty members who know nothing about what we do and are not experts in our fields. This makes for low morale, high turnover, and lots of stress.
    It's incredible how faculty members are not held to the same ethical and professional standards that staff are.

    Advice to Management

    1) Have expert staff manage staff 2) Hire more staff to handle the growth you are creating 3) provide pay raises on a regular basis 4) hold faculty accountable for their behavior

    Lots of research groups which allows you to explore different potential research areas to do for your PhD program.
