    I worked at EURAC as an intern

    Pros

    - Lovely people
    - Great location and views
    - Inspiring projects
    - Independence
    - Working hours

    Bolzano is definitely an ideal place for great quality of life.

    Cons

    - Negative competition/protectionism towards data
    - Lack of collaboration structures
    - Salary

    The competitive spirit and protectionism towards own data can be counter-productive

    Advice to Management

    Might be interesting to aim towards an approach of open science - incentivise more collaborations and sharing of ideas to permit a more cooperative work environment.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at EURAC as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice building, I have met some very nice people there. It was nice to be in a young, dynamic and international environment, This working place has a great potential

    Cons

    The project-management in my Institute was very very bad. Insufficient planning, inefficient working and understimulating projects along with an unsatisfying salary and no team management skills by the head of Institute made me leave the Academy.

    Negative Outlook

    Pros

    Nice office space (at least in the Hafner building), most of the colleagues are friendly and nice to work with. Good lunch benefits. Friendly to foreigners.

    Cons

    Push and pull strategy of senior management, contracts are a mess and not reviewed on time. Unless you plan to do a PhD there is no room for long-term growth.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management needs some fresh blood maybe.

    I worked at EURAC as a contractor (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic and quite young center. Welcoming and homely environment.
    The academy organize indoor and outdoor activities to create synergy among people of the several institutes.
    The internal bureaucratic procedure of projects is quite fast.

    Cons

    The salary is not fair.
    The internal policy aims at hiring young graduates to make them start an internship and/or a PhD.
    But afterwards, there are a few possibilities to take up a career as senior researcher.
    In this way, the institutes do not grow up and the scientific quality get low.

    Pros

    some level of liberty at work

    Cons

    no opportunity to advance career, mediocre handling of employees by senior management, no logic in promotion,

    Advice to Management

    There is much needed shuffling of management to be done and if possible to bring fresh ideas and new blood in management. Career Chances should be granted on merit
