Pros

Academic setting where cutting edge technologies are under development. Some projects are well-funded, with new equipment and opportunities to learn their operation and maintenance.

Cons

Used to their grad students giving up their personal life for the project, and non-students are held to this standard, at least on a subconscious level.

Advice to Management

Realize that people with industrial experience should be compensated at the same level as academics who have spent little time outside of a university setting.

    Advice to Management

    You're not doing too bad. I'd ease up a little on the solar power thing and instead concentrate more on making sure your Math and Science departments have enough teachers aids to properly grade papers and quizzes to provide feedback for your students.
