    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Scientists collaborate often here and most machinery needed is available in a lab somewhere on campus. Great benefits and high hopes by some professors.

    Cons

    I could make much more money in industry or at a wealthier university. Also, many professors with tenure have no ambition and no longer publish papers or apply for grants. You must be selective about who you work for here or you will find yourself washing disposables because the lab can't afford to buy more.

    Advice to Management

    Working with a scientist is not always easy and there are a lot of politics that go one behind closed doors. More transparency would be nice.
