Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Florida International University full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Although it is not a good fame university, it is a vibrant place. Lots of constructions are going on, and departments especial for bio-related are expanding. Good infrastructure, reasonable student, and nice weather.

Cons

Because it is relative new, national recognition may not be great so far. Administrative process for a new employee is kind of slow at least for postdoc.

    I have been working at Florida International University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hands-on approach that let's you become engaged if you want to be engaged. Good opportunities to get exposure if you are willing to put in the time and effort.

    Cons

    Focus on short term profit at the expense of commitment to long term vision of academic excellence. Little respect for work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Reaffirm your commitment to academic excellence and reward those who are committed to it. Walk the walk, don't just talk the talk.
